There are a number of lenders to choose from when you need cash for an emergency situation, and choosing the best lender for your needs can be a difficult decision to make. That is why we’ve created a range of guides, comparing Sunny’s short-term loans to other similar loan providers on the market, to help you discover which lender may be the right choice for you.
In this guide, we’ve taken a closer look at short-term loan provider Moneyboat, what they offer, and Sunny’s alternative offer.
What type of loans are available from Sunny and Moneyboat?
Both Sunny and Moneyboat offer short-term loans, which are intended for use in an emergency situation such as if your car breaks down and you need to pay for repairs, or if your boiler goes haywire just as you need it in a spell of cold weather.
Short-term loans are something that should only be taken on after a great deal of thought and consideration. They should be treated as a last resort, so it’s important that you explore and rule out all the other ways that could be available to you to cover r your financial need before you apply for a short-term loan. This could be as simple as using your savings, borrowing the money you need from family or friends, or perhaps using a credit card you already have to cover your costs and repay the balance before interest is applied to your account.
Sunny and Moneyboat are both direct lenders; this means that when you apply to them, you will borrow the money directly from them. Choosing a direct lender can also mean that there are less delays when it comes to getting an accurate decision on your application, and if you are accepted the money will be transferred faster.
