Can I borrow from my bank?

Information about the different types of loans that are available from your bank or financial institution.

Installment loans

High-interest loans, usually from $500-$15,000

Car title loans

High-interest loans that are secured against a vehicle. The vehicle can be repossessed if the loan repayment terms aren’t adhered to.
