Financial freedom is a state that has sometimes proven elusive even to the financially adept due to life’s numerous eventualities.
This has seen majority have their assets repossessed, mortgaged homes foreclosed or even worse file for bankruptcy in the event that debts outweigh income.
The outcome of debt is no different to users of loan apps.
Despite their lack of security a term commonly referred to as unsecured, defaulters of such loan apps may face unorthodox means of coercion by lenders to facilitate repayment.
Nonetheless, the final destination of all defaulters usually ends at the CRB.

This may lead to a borrower being granted or denied a loan advancement depending on their credit history.
However, not all lenders opt for this route. Below, we look at some of the loan apps that do not check CRB status during loan approvals.
