Loans Canada Announces Online Lending Survey Results
Loans Canada published their annual online lending survey results on Monday morning. The company polled online personal loan applicants throughout Canada.
Among the results, several statistics stand out.
40.8% of respondents said that they felt “pressured” to fill their loan application quickly, a compelling counter to the mainstream narrative that borrowers are demanding speed.
44.8% of respondents said they felt “pressured” to accept credit building services even though 85.3% of applicants that had been rejected for an online personal loan said they had been rejected on the basis that their credit score was too low.
Loans Canada noted large swaths of satisfaction and dissatisfaction alike, finding that applicants that have never been able to get approved for an online personal loan were highly likely to rank the online borrowing experience as “very bad” while those that have been approved were highly likely to rank the online borrowing experience as “good” or “very good.”August 9, 2021
