I have bad credit, but I need a loan fast. Do you know of an agency willing to work with me? (texas)

I need to buy a car. I need a loan for about $2000. Does anyone know of an agency around here that would help? Thank you

  • If you work you could do a payday advance loan. Aside from that, I'm really not sure, sorry. :(

  • An agency that will help you? Sounds unlikely. More like they'll charge you an insane amount in interest that will eat away at what little money you do have.

    If I were you, I'd have a huge garage sale getting rid of everything that you don't need. Then start saving up money for a car. Good luck!

  • I agree with erica. Do what you can to avoid the payday loans. It will only be the start of a vicious circle.

  • Check out big sky loans. It's sounds equal to a loan shark to me, but since it's a Native American company it's legal. I don't know exactly how "expensive" it is (which is how they advertise it on tv) but if you are desperate it's an option.

  • I don't think military can do the payday loans, atleast they can't in Alabama. There are places than will loan to anyone with bad credit. the interest in horrible though.

  • You said hubby is active duty? You need to ask him about applying for an AER loan. he will need to speak to his Cpt. first but if you NEED this then they will help with a no interest low rate loan.

  • Oh yeah, online there is Pioneer which is a military lending company.

  • Avoid payday loans - why can't you get a loan through the Armed Forces Bank?
