Where Can I Get an Unsecured Loan to Pay Down Debt? – Riss

Written by Steve Rhode

“Dear Steve,

Approx. $25K in credit card debt. Using 75% of available credit and making minimum payments. Tried the home equity route already and was denied. Have a credit score of about 706.

I would like to obtain an unsecured loan to pay down debt, but using 75% of my available credit is probably going to hurt me even if my credit score is 706, right? Do you think there’s even a chance of obtaining a loan? I’d rather not have another credit inquiry on my credit. I’ve had 3 in the past year or so.

  • Thank you for the quick response! I was reading that guide and saw the Lending Club’s criteria for most likely getting approved included a debt-to-income ratio of 35% or less. Not going to be the case for me – more like 70%. Is it still worth it to apply?
