Unsecured personal loans allow you to borrow funds without having to put up any collateral, such as a car or bank Certificate of Deposit (CD). You can use personal loans for a variety of purposes, including debt consolidation.
Debt consolidation is the process of paying off your credit cards with a personal loan, thereby consolidating all your debts into one monthly payment to a single lender.
A personal loan through Credit9 is a consolidation loan with a low fixed-rate loan with amounts from $2,500 up to $45,000 and flexible terms of 2 to 5 years. A fixed rate means your monthly payments won’t change. That makes budgeting for payments simple and predictable over the life of your loan.
You may also be eligible for rate discounts for adding a qualified co-applicant, showing proof of eligible retirement savings (like a 401k or IRA), and setting up direct pay to creditors when consolidating debt.
Credit cards charge compounding interest, which compounds daily (interest on interest), accrues very quickly, and can take years to pay off. Credit9 Loans are installment loans which charge simple interest at a fixed interest rate, making it a lot easier to pay back in a shorter period of time.

Providing your basic information to view loan options does not impact your credit score.
To determine how much you could qualify for, we conduct a “soft pull” on your credit. If you select a loan option and continue your application, we conduct a “hard inquiry” to verify the information you’ve provided on the application for final loan approval.
This “hard inquiry” will be seen as an inquiry on your credit report.
After final loan approval, we’ll initiate the transfer of funds into the bank account you’ve provided via ACH as soon as the next business day.
Payment instructions will be provided after your loan originates. Payments can be made through either recurring ACH, manual ACH, or check.
The terms of your loan are based on a variety of factors including: your credit score, your credit history, and the amount of debt you have accumulated in relation to your income.
Everybody’s financial situation is different, and everybody qualifies for different loan terms.
However, many people find that with a Credit9 Loan, their single and fixed monthly loan payment is often lower than the combined monthly minimum payments of all their existing credit card and unsecured loan payments.
To qualify for a loan, all loan borrowers must:
1) be a U.S. citizen currently living in the U.S., or a permanent resident currently living in the U.S.; (unless military personnel are on active duty, in which case it is not required that the applicant be currently living in the US.)
2) be at least 18 years old;
3) have a valid email account;
4) have a verifiable name, date of birth and social security number;
5) have a full time job, a full time job offer starting in 2 months, a regular part time job or another source of regular income;
6) have a personal banking account at a U.S. financial institution with a routing transit number; and
7) meet our minimum credit requirements.
The minimum loan amount is $2,500 and the maximum loan amount is $45,000.
YES. And the qualifications are the same as for the primary applicant.
It’s fast, easy, and free!
With our online application you can simply input your desired loan amount, state of residence, and contact information.
