Choudhary was asked if she had any advice for those with bad credit who are in the market for a debt consolidation loan.
“When considering debt, one wants to look carefully at the current rates you are paying in a newly consolidated loan in comparison to the rates of the existing debt,” she says. “It is important to also consider what happens if you miss a payment under an old loan situation versus new consolidation.”
