Just like traditional business loans, instant business loans could be secured and unsecured. Both can be used to finance various business investments but there are some important differences between the two types of instant business loans which should be carefully considered before applying for a loan.
Unsecured loans do not require from the borrower to put an asset as a security against the loan. As a result, the lender has no right to the borrower’s possessions in case the latter fails to repay the loan. The risk is thus taken over by the bank or financial institution that approves the loan application although the borrower is required to provide certain guarantees that he or she will repay the loan. The lender has several instruments to recover the value of the loan in case of defaults, however, this is not an easy job. For that reason banks and financial institutions do not give unsecured instant business loans easily. To have your application for an unsecured instant business loan approved, your business and credit history have to convince the lenders that you will repay the loan. But due to the risk for the lender, unsecured instant business loans are usually approved for smaller sums, while the interest rates are higher than for secured loans.
In contrary to secured loans,secured instant business loan requires from the borrower to put an asset as a security against the loan. The asset can be a real estate, equipment, vehicle, land or any other valuable possession that meets a particular equity-debt ratio. It serves as a guarantee that the loan will be repaid according to the terms of the loan documents. In case of defaults, the lender has the right to take the asset that is put against the loan to recover the value of the loan. Due to the higher risk involved for the borrower of a secured loan and the ability to recover the value of the loan through assets, secured business loans typically have relatively low interest rates and lower monthly payments, while the loan itself and its terms are less influenced by the borrower’s credit history than in the case of unsecured instant business loans.
