Paying off debt with a loan

I am in arrears/blacklisted – can I get a loan to pay off my debt?

When you are in arrears or blacklisted, it reflects negatively on your credit report at the credit bureaus. This means that your payment record is bad with your credit providers and you cannot afford to pay back your debt on a monthly basis due to being over indebted. When applying for a loan, the credit provider has a scoring system, where they check your affordability as well as your payment profile on the credit report. Due to this reflecting negatively, your application for a loan will be declined. Giving you a loan could put you in a worse situation financially.
