Another shocking and revealing study was release in May 2018 that states 40% of Americans cannot cover $400 in the case of an emergency expense. That means that 4 in 10 adults in the United States do not have enough cash on hand without borrowing money or selling valuables. At some point, everyone has trouble making ends meet - and traditional banks do not provide smaller loan amounts in a timely fashion. They have lengthy, confusing contracts that require collateral, good credit, and a specific purpose that must fall within their guidelines. Plus, they have a long application process and only accept large loan amounts. But this study shows that when a huge portion of the population will at some point need a few hundred dollars, immediately, they won’t have it to get out of their sticky situation. And banks won’t help. So where do people turn?
For accounts you already have open, keep the revolving balances around 30% of the credit limit. This is the optimal ratio for a good credit score. But do not open a bunch of new credit cards just to increase your limit as this approach can backfire and actually lower your score. Slow and steady is the best route. Pay off debt rather than moving it around and do not close unused credit cards because the longer you have a credit card the better it is for your score.
Good credit is not required. If you've been turned down for financing on a car or don't qualify for a mortgage, that doesn't mean you won't qualify for a LendUp Loan. Part of the company's mission is to help those with credit issues rehabilitate their credit rating over time (where available). LendUp offers cash when you need it, without creating that endless debt cycle that so many lenders facilitate with rollover balances and increasing fee structures. And with the LendUp Ladder, we strive to provide a path for customers in eligible states to move up and earn access to apply for more money at a lower cost. See The LendUp Ladder for details.

So once you’ve decided on a loan, you shouldn’t just sign the agreement and wait for your funds.
