Collateral vs non-collateral loan

  • I need an education loan for abroad studies
    I don't know how to start
    Please help

    1. What is a secured (or a collateral) loan?
      When someone wants to borrow a large sum of money, banks and NBFC’s ask them for some collateral in the form of property, fixed deposits, or other investments and savings.
      This collateral is considered as a form of security for the bank and they have the right to withhold it in case you are unable to pay the loan back.
    2. What is an unsecured (or a non-collateral) loan?
      Sometimes, it’s enough for a bank to know that you are going to a university abroad for your studies. They do not need any collateral and trust you to repay the loan amount (with the interest) once you graduate and start earning.

  • They both have their pros and cons-

    1. Collateral loans have a lower interest rate
    2. Non-collateral loans give you more time after graduation to start earning
    3. Non-collateral loans ask you to pay a simple interest every month during the moratarium period, and more
