In 2012, the average household credit card debt was almost $16,000. In addition, there are about 37 million individuals with outstanding student loans. Most of us have outstanding debt – and it can become a source of stress for many families.
If you have a number of outstanding loans and are having trouble making your monthly payments and you wonder how you’ll ever pay off the remaining balance, a consolidation loan may help.
A consolidation loan is a single loan that is used to pay off several other debts. By having one loan, you can avoid late fees, extra charges, and the potential for bad credit if you become unable to make minimum payments.
