Personal Loan for Bad Credit Lenders (IA) by City

Flag of the State of Iowa It’s not always easy to stay on top of the bills and keep the lights on, and there are times here in the Hawkeye State when you might find yourself looking for loans for people with bad credit. Because when the lights go out in your Davenport apartment because you’re behind on the utility bill, the first thing you do (after finding the flashlight) is to look for a way to quickly raise some cash. A bad credit personal loan can be the way.

From Fort Dodge to Waterloo, and Des Moines to Riverside, there are all too many ways that minor nuisances can quickly escalate into major financial problems without a quick cash infusion. Just because you may have bad credit from the medical bills after your stay at the Marian Health Center in Sioux City, or after you lost your house in Iowa City during the Great Recession, doesn’t mean you can’t find a personal loan to get you through the latest mini-crisis.

That tow truck in Burlington looked an awful lot like it was towing your car—and guess what? It was your car. And you can’t afford to wait to get it back.

Same with your laptop. Permanent blue screen of death. So you brought it to a computer repair shop in Cedar Rapids. They just called to tell you it’s not worth trying to fix. But your laptop is your livelihood, and you’ve got to find a way to buy another one.

Maybe you live in Osborne and are a self-employed contractor working in Dubuque. You’re waiting on a payment but in the meantime you’ve got to come up with some cash to fix your work truck. A bad credit personal loan could get you back on the road so you can also get back on the job.

Or perhaps you find yourself stuck with a nasty mess you didn’t create but which you’ve got to fix—like when your roommate in Council Bluffs threw a party on your back deck and half the deck collapsed. He conveniently took off for Des Moines and now your landlord is looking at you to pay for the damages or else she’s going to evict you—and there’s no way you want to move back in with your folks in Grinnell. A bad credit personal loan could come in handy right about now.
