An "installment loan" is a broad, general term that refers to the overwhelming majority of both personal and commercial loans extended to borrowers. Installment loans include any type of loan that is repaid with regularly scheduled payments, or installments. Each payment on an installment debt includes repayment of a portion of the principal amount borrowed and also the payment of interest on the debt. The main variables that determine the amount of each regularly scheduled loan payment include the amount of the loan, the interest rate charged to the borrower, and the length or term of the loan.
Most traditional financial institutions have a tendency of running hard credit checks on their prospective borrowers. This is done in a bid to determine the level of risk you carry before offering you any credit. To do this, they have to check your credit history, credit report, as well as your overall scores. Normally, if there are several credit inquiries in your profile it is treated as an indicator of your desperation for cash.

Payday loans should be used for short-term financial needs only and not as a long-term financial solution. Any advance of money obtained through a payday loan is not intended to meet long-term financial needs. A payday loan should only be used to meet immediate short-term cash needs. Refinancing a payday loan rather than paying the debt in full when due will require the payment of additional charges. Customers with credit difficulties should seek credit counseling before entering into any payday loan transaction.
Some lenders may use credit score along with other factors for loan consideration. An example is the FICO scoring system — which ranges from 300 to 850 — to gauge the likelihood of a borrower repaying a loan. Scores below 620 often fall into the “bad credit” range, which makes it difficult for those people to borrow from lenders that only use FICO to determine loan eligibility. Many factors play a part in the scoring process.
