It can be difficult for low income earners to get approved for small loans under $5000, especially with banks and credit unions. Fortunately, there are options available through specialist lenders, government, and non-profit partnerships.
However, even through some of these options, loans may have tight restrictions on what they can be used for. This is often the case with government and non-profit based solutions.
In situations where a government or non-profit advance or loan won’t work, there are specialist lenders who may provide you with the funds you need. They generally have fewer restrictions and flexible approval criteria but do come at a cost.
