Unsecured Personal Loans
This type loan is approved solely on the borrower's ability to pay. No up front collateral is needed. However this type loan will carry a much higher interest rate because there is nothing declared of valve for the institution to recover if the customer defaults on the loan.
The major advantage of using credit cards for a large purchase is that it is quick and simple. The major disadvantage of credit cards is you will be paying extremely high interest rates on the money borrowed. Credit Cards are best used for short term needs that can be paid back quickly so the borrower will not accumulate higher interest rate charges inflating the credit card balance. Overall you will spend a lot of your income financing a long term debt on credit cards.
