Installment loan monthly payment calculator
Find out if you can afford to take out that short-term loan.
When your credit prevents you from qualifying for a traditional personal loan, an installment loan might be your only option when you need money fast. But with APRs in the triple digits, it can mean paying back double or even triple what you borrowed.
Before taking out an installment loan, use our calculator to ensure you can afford the monthly repayments. If not, you might want to continue comparing lenders to find one that better fits your budget.
