Unwelcome financial expenses can appear quickly and from out of nowhere and can affect people with a wide variety of credit scores and histories. However, for people with bad credit scores, it can be exceptionally difficult to find, receive, and even apply for the financial aid you might need - in the form of quick, short term loans. In the following article we will outline how you could still qualify for a bad credit loan quickly and easily with buffa.

What is a Bad Credit Loan?

A bad credit loan is a loan which is specifically designed for those with poor credit scores and impaired or limited credit histories. Many lenders are unable to offer a loan to people who have a bad credit rating; this is due to the perceived risk of lending to that type of person being too high, as a bad credit rating is on the surface an indicator of poor financial health.

The reality of course is that people can and do have a bad credit rating for a variety of reasons, and these may not necessarily reflect their ability to manage the scheduled repayments of a loan.

At buffa, we understand that every personal circumstance is unique, and we strive to do everything we can to offer a solution, from a reliable direct lender, to help our applicants whenever they need us.

Our no-guarantor, bad credit loans may be available for you, even if you have a poor credit score or are currently recorded as having other existing finance arrangements in place.
