A high-risk loan is a financing or credit product that is considered more likely to default, compared to other, more conventional loans. The higher risk of default can be attributed to one or more factors when evaluating a loan request.
Perhaps the most common examples of high-risk loans are those issued to individuals without a strong credit rating. High-risk lenders may consider a variety of factors in making such a loan and setting the terms:
High-risk loans made without reviewing the income of the applicant are known as No Income Verification (NIV) or No Documentation loans. These higher risk loans can also take the form of unsecured loans (made without collateral from the borrower) or secured loans issued with no money down from the borrower.
Lenders specializing in such high-risk loans may charge higher fees and interest rates to offset any potential losses.

Someone recently out of college, for example, might not have the work or credit history needed to establish much of a credit score. A couple recovering from a financial setback might have a history of fiscal responsibility, but need help in dealing with unexpected bills. In cases like these an installment loan from NetCredit could help bridge the gap to financial security.
