Share secured loans – a great way to get a low interest rate loan
A share secured loan, by definition, is a loan secured by your own shares. In this case, your funds in your savings (share) account. Your assets are held as collateral for the loan amount until the loan is paid off.
The share secured loan rate at NC Community Credit Union is 3.5% above the savings deposit rate, and you will continue to earn on the deposit balance while you pay off your loan.
Share secured loans are excellent for those seeking to establish credit, or even repair credit because they represent a low-risk for the credit union but still give you, the borrower, a reportable trade line on your credit report. If payments are made satisfactorily, it can help boost your credit score. Some even opt to utilize a share secured loan for large expenditures, like a car.
