We are a seasoned group of experts in lending, technology, and data who are dedicated to creating more equitable methods of pricing borrowers who are less than ideal.
You should have the opportunity to demonstrate that you are a better borrower than your credit score suggests because, in our opinion, credit scores aren’t very good at predicting how good of a borrower you will be in the future.
We’ll lower your interest rate if you show that you have sound money management practices that lower our risk. It’s that simple.

How much can I borrow?We consider a lot more than your credit score when determining what amount you qualify to borrow. The amount approved will be right-sized to what you can repay.
Finding out how much of a loan you qualify for only takes a few minutes after you submit your application. The maximum loan amount we offer is $1,000. The mere fact that you submitted an application will not affect your traditional credit score with the “big three.”
Can I get a loan with bad credit?Worried about your credit score when you need a loan? We aren’t. We run a credit check with the specialized credit bureaus, and not the major bureaus used by the banks. Your traditional credit score with the “big three” is not something we use to make a loan decision.
So, if you’re thinking about it in banker-speak, yes, we do lend to people who have “no credit history.”
We are aware that there are more positive aspects of your path to financial independence that we can consider. We consider your credit history to include things like having a mobile phone account, paying your rent, and other activities from your everyday life.
Will my credit score change if I apply for a loan?Because we approach lending decisions differently, we don’t do a credit check with any of the three major credit bureaus. (The three major bureaus are the ones that calculate your credit score.) So, your credit score with them should not be impacted by applying for a loan with Ascend Loans.
To confirm your identity and/or whether you are a member of the armed forces in active duty, we may use additional sources. Some of these sources might make use of data from the significant credit bureaus. When they do, our check for your application might appear on your credit report as a soft inquiry. However, the major credit bureaus do not take into account soft inquiries when determining your credit score.
What are the minimum requirements to qualify for a loan?As responsible lenders, we ask that you have a consistent source of income, meet all legal requirements to enter into a contract, have an open an active checking account, and meet the Ascend Loans underwriting requirements. Also, your source of income needs to be one that we can verify, if needed.

What is an Annual Percentage Rate or APR?It is NOT your interest rate. The annual percentage rate, or APR for short, is your total cost of credit on a loan. It is all the interest you will pay in a year (or the term of your loan if less than a year) plus any fees associated with getting the loan. Those fees don’t include ones you might incur along the way like late payment fees, or processing fees if you opt to pay by check. The fees in your APR are ones charged at the time your loan is made. Some lenders charge application fees, origination fees, etc. Those fees are added to the total interest. Then that total is divided by the amount you borrow (the principal) to calculate the APR. By law, all lenders must disclose the APR in the loan agreement. You should look at the APR when you compare one loan to another as it reflects the true cost of credit.
When you apply for your loan and authorize us to deduct your payment from your checking account for each due date, you can sign up for auto-pay and receive a 25 percentage point discount on your interest rate.
Additionally, there are no additional fees for making additional loan payments or even paying off your loan early. The amount of interest that accrues and is owed on your loan will be reduced in either case. To log in and schedule your payoff or to make an additional payment at any time, click My Account. It is safe, secure, and simple.
Is there a penalty for paying my loan off early?
