Rise Credit is a short-term lender that helps to tackle financial emergencies by providing fast and easy personal installment loans. The lender says you could get the loan amount as early as the next day after applying. It offers flexible payment scheduling and you can choose your own terms. There are no fees for paying off your loan early.
How is the lender different?
Rise encourages borrowers to pay off their debt as quickly as possible. But, if you need additional credit you can get a 50% drop in your rate on future loans after making 24 months of scheduled payments (excluding customers with starting rates of less than 75%). After 12 additional months of payments, you qualify for a 36% rate.
Rise offers a 5-day guarantee, so you have five business days from the time you take your loan. If you think the loan isn’t right for you, simply repay the principal and there are no fees. Rise offers tools to help customers understand their credit and cultivate good money habits.
Rise reports payments to a major credit bureau, enabling customers to show positive financial behavior. With Credit Score Plus, it provides credit score and credit alerts for free to help customers track their progress.
