Your individual loan rate will vary based on your credit history and payment history. Borrowers who qualify for the lowest rate will have a better credit score than borrowers with less credit or lower scores. If you’re thinking of taking out a loan, be advised that a history of full, on-time payments tends to affect your credit score for the better.
When you consolidate your debts, you can sometimes reduce your interest payments and pay off your loans more quickly so you can get out of debt faster.
