A secured overdraft facility is an extremely convenient route for accessing extra cash for all your short-term expenses. With a revolving overdraft facility, you won’t have to liquidate your assets or sell them to meet your shortage of funds. Since it is a secured loan, the limit of overdraft and the rate of interest charged is decided by the value of the asset pledged as collateral. Your income is not a valid eligibility criterion. The best part is that you’ll have to pay interest only on the outstanding balance at the end of each month. A secured loan usually has less rigorous eligibility criteria as opposed to an unsecured loan. Although a good credit history is always an added benefit, it may not be the biggest hindrance to approval of the loan.
