This is the second in our 12-month Money Smart financial literacy series at the Bedford Central Library presented by Woodforest Bank*.  This month’s topic is called Borrowing Basics.  By the end of this course, participants will understand how credit works, types of credit that are available, and if they are ready to apply for credit.  To achieve this objective, the participants will be able to:

  • Define “credit” and “loan”.
  • Distinguish between secured and unsecured loans.
  • Identify three types of loans.
  • Identify the costs associated with getting a loan.
  • Identify the factors lenders use to make loan decisions.
  • Explain why installment loans cost less than rent-to-own services.
