Wisconsin Personal Loan Laws and Regulations in (WI)

(last updated 11/13/2019)
A loan, whether precomputed or based upon the actuarial method, made after October 31, 1984, is not subject to any maximum interest rate limit. Loan contracts providing for installments payable at monthly intervals may provide for a first period between the date of the contract and the first installment due date of not more than 45 days and not less than 15 days. Where the first period is greater or lesser than one month, interest may be charged only for each day in the first period, at a rate not to exceed one-thirtieth of the interest which would be applicable to a first installment period of one month, but such first period may be considered a monthly interval for purposes of determining rebates. Where the first period is greater than one month, any additional interest charge shall be earned and may be added to and collected at the time of the first installment payment.

No loan of $3,000 or less, excluding interest, scheduled to be repaid in substantially equal installments at equal periodic intervals shall provide for a scheduled repayment of principal more than 36 months and 15 days from the date of the contract if the principal exceeds $700, nor more than 24 months and 15 days from the date of the contract if the principal is $700 or less.

Flag of the State of Wisconsin The reasons a person might seek a personal loan are as varied as the lives of Wisconsin residents. Whether you live in the metro area of Milwaukee, Madison, or Green Bay, farm the fields in one of the many rural counties, or live close to the shores of the Great Lakes, you have dreams and goals. You have ambitions. You work hard and put your best into everything you to do keep moving, as the state motto says, “Forward”.

Perhaps you’re looking to take a dream vacation. You see beautiful pictures of warm, sunny places and the stark contrast with the snow and cold outside your window right now makes you yearn to get away. If you’re lucky, you might find an amazing deal on an all-inclusive resort or a cruise that will take you to a place where you can build sand castles instead of snow forts. You can trade your hot cocoa for an icy, fruity drink and your snowsuit for a swimsuit.

You might be looking around your home and thinking of improvements. Maybe your high heating bills are making you think about replacing those drafty old windows. Replacing your old furnace with a newer, more efficient model could save you money in the long run. Putting on new siding and adding insulation could help keep things warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. But all of those improvements, while they will save you money in the future, cost big dollars now.

The University of Wisconsin system offers so many opportunities for a quality education in an amazing number of fields. Perhaps you or your children would like to pursue some of those opportunities to be in a better position for your future. Whether you want to advance in your current career or change tracks altogether, a degree is a great first step. But college just keeps getting more expensive all the time.

What can you do when you have all of these dreams but they are always just out of reach? What goals could you accomplish if you could just have access to $1,500 to $40,000? We Give Loans is here to help.
