Using Bank Financing To Fund Training
Most of us have bank accounts. And most banks have credit facilities to help pay the costs involved with career training. Your ability to access these funds will depend on things like your credit history and your ability to repay.
There are other financial institutions that offer credit using similar guidelines. You need to be aware that some lenders will charge much higher interest rates if your credit worthiness is impaired in anyway. Banks and financial institutions often also require guarantors if they feel the loan needs extra security.
