To Ramesh’s luck, he selected bank offering cheapest interest rate and got money into the bank account in less than 3 days.

Ramesh also had other options to get loan by asking someone to become guarantor and providing advance cheques. However the conditions were not favorable at that point of time for him.

Other cheaper options to arrange money for unforeseen events for individuals like Ramesh wanting small loan amount are:

  • Peer to peer lending: These are nothing but lending marketplaces where lenders are typically individuals. There is no financial institution in the middle and loans are approved within shortest period of time. Borrower can directly deal with multiple lenders and bargain on interest rates. Since the loan amount is fifty thousand only, low interest rate can be offered. Prominent peer to peer lending platforms in India are,,,
  • Co-operative banks: Compared to commercial banks, taking loan from co-operative bank is much simpler. And most importantly, the interest rate is on a lower side. And for the loan amount of Rs. 50, 000; such banks are highly recommended.
  • Friends/relatives: This ideally should be the first option to be tried. Since the personal loan amount of Rs. 50000 is small, you can ask your acquaintances to pay this money and in return you can repay along with the interest. This way, both the parties would be at the advantage.
  • Against securities: You can also get personal loan against fixed deposit, shares, mutual funds, and LIC policy. Benefit of going through this route is that the interest rate would be low, which will help in saving money.
