Massachusetts is hard to spell, but rife with history, beauty and excellent fresh seafood. The New England Holocaust Memorial is one of the lesser known historical sites but no less stunning. Even those who are less than familiar with American history should have seen enough of it in movies to be aware of the significance of this state.
Judicious use of a Massachusetts payday loan can also help you to avoid historically bad credit and high debt.
High Risk/High Benefit
While it is wise to be cautious in your use of payday loans, as there is strong potential for increasing your debt rather than improving your financial state, there are ways this system can serve as a benefit and help with credit repair. If you have found yourself in a situation where a very low credit score impedes your ability to borrow, sensible use of short-term credit can help to improve the data that appears on your report.
Payday lenders incur a high degree of risk when they disburse monies to a borrower. This is because a traditional bank will run a comprehensive credit check of potential borrowers in order to determine an appropriate loan amount, interest rate and repayment terms, while minimizing their risk of a default on the part of the borrower.
A payday lender only requires proof of employment and a checking or savings account on the part of the borrower. This puts them at a higher risk for default from the borrower, thus they charge a concomitantly higher interest rate to mitigate this.
By the same token, this leads to a much higher level of risk on the borrower’s part. If she fails to repay the loan in a timely fashion, the penalties are much more extreme and significant. However, wise use of such loans can salvage an emergency situation without leading to further emergencies.
How To Use Short-Term Credit
Payday loans are an excellent source of funding in an emergency, especially if a borrower’s access to any other type of credit is limited and time is short. Unlike a traditional loan, short-term credit can be deposited into a checking account in as little as 24 hours, which, in a crisis can make all the difference. Because of the high costs on these loans, they should never be applied to recurring debts, as they will lead to a whirlpool of interest and borrowing that may never be escaped.
However, prompt and full repayment of loans can begin to lead to the cleaning up of your credit report and an improved credit score. This is in turn may help lower your debt on several fronts and enable you to improve your financial standing.
