Sometimes things just seem to pile up and get worse. Especially nowadays with the recession and all. Everyone is having a bit of a hard time, especially when it comes to getting a loan. All of the brick-and-mortar financial institutions are sitting on their money, too scared to lend except to those with the most financial assets or sterling credit histories, and then it is still a tough deal. In spite of all this, there are non-traditional lenders out there who are willing to give loans of up to $10,000, even to those with past credit problems. So, if the end of the month is coming around and the bank account is empty, or you need to make an important purchase, you may qualify for one of these loans to put a little flow back into the cash flow. Just meet a few requirements and you could be on your way to the bank.

Employment Is Paramount
For the most part, meeting the requirements to qualify for a loan from a non-traditional lender is pretty easy. Of course, holding a job is one of the requirements. Any lender expects to be repaid and wants to be sure you have the means to do that. Most lenders look for an employment period with the same firm of at least ninety days. Others may require six months with the same company. A lender, shown signs of stability, such as a steady job, may allow a larger loan of up to $10,000, or more acceptable repayment terms.
Everybody Has One
Everybody who is loan-worthy, whether or not they have sterling credit histories, has to have a bank. A checking account is usually required. Especially if you are looking to land a $10,000 unsecured personal loan. If you have a savings account or money market accounts, this will definitely boost your loan worthiness. Lenders may ask for past bank statements. Hopefully they will be rather free of excessive overdrafts, bounced checks or any other smirches.
Everybody Has One of These, Too
Where do you live? Who are you? Prove it. Of course, these questions will be asked. Usually a driving license or a passport or some similar ID issued by a governmental entity is sufficient to prove legal identity. Of course, requirements by vendors will vary. As to where you live? Well, a coinciding address on your bank statements will help. But, many lenders ask to see utility bills with your name and address on them, often going back three months or more. A point to keep in mind is that the larger the loan, the more documentation you may have to submit. You will receive a little more scrutiny for a $10,000 loan.
And Get One of These
When you are looking for a lender, you need to shop just as you would for a pair of shoes or a car. And you need to apply to a number of different lenders. This way you will be sure you are getting a loan package that is the suitable for you. As outlined earlier, a lender will be looking at your income, your length of employment, your residency and identity, your bank records. Based on these and perhaps the state you reside in, some will accept you and some will reject you. With multiple applications you will not have a problem with a rejection or two.
Keep in mind that internet access will allow you great facility in shopping for a lender, and in many cases the whole process can take place online. With wise shopping and careful consideration, you could be on the way to getting that $10,000 loan to prime the cash flow pump.
