Flag of the State of Florida Are bills in Florida bringing you down? Is there an emergency that has come up suddenly that you can't afford right now, and your bad credit keeps you from getting a loan? There are many reasons to need a loan, and there are plenty of personal loans for people with bad credit.

Sometimes life in Tallahassee is too busy. Days come and go in the blink of an eye, and things that need to be done are pushed off to another day. Then, another day, so on and so forth until you finally realize that you have $800 in traffic tickets that are all due in the next week, and you haven't saved a dime to pay them off. You didn't know that parking lot across the street from your office was off limits to outsiders. You also didn't know you could get a ticket from that, anymore than you knew you could get one from turning left in to the outside lane, or rolling through a stop sign instead of stopping completely. Either way, you owe the money, and it needs to be paid. But, where are you going to get that?

Your roommate, out of the blue, decides to move out. He's gone within days, and you really don't know why. You two got along, his job was just down the street. As far as you knew, everything was good. Until the bills show up. While you've been taking care of gas and the cable, he's been dealing with the electric company. That's what you thought, at least. The $600 bill says otherwise. And let’s not forget that you will need an extra $400 to cover rent. You're in a panic- this bill is in your name, so you can't just ignore it. You have to deal with this before they shut you off. The roommate not only didn't leave a forwarding address, but disconnected their phone. If only there was some way to come up with $1,000.

Driving down Highway 1, in the Palm Bay area, someone rear-ends your car, sending you into a spin. It takes a miracle to get the car under control, but by the time you do, your momentum is halted by the vehicles in front of you. It's a giant mess, with everyone pointing their fingers at someone else, except for you. You're too busy screaming in pain from your broken arm. An ambulance takes you away, and a tow truck handles the rest. It's a day in the hospital, letting them look you over, and cast your arm. It could have been so much worse. A few weeks go by, and the bill finally shows up at the door. You owe the hospital a $1,000 deductible. And with missing time from work, your paycheck is running short. What do you do? Where can you get a loan with bad credit? We Give Loans can help you out of all these problems, and more.
