Our Beginnings

loans.org is the creation of Loans Org, LLC, a company dedicated to helping consumers sift through the ambiguous details of the financing industry. After the housing market collapse and subsequent recession, loans.org stood up to provide the public with access to free, reliable, and relevant information about various types of borrowing. The more people who know about the dangers and pitfalls that some lending arrangements contain, the less likely we’ll find ourselves in another economic crisis. That’s been our mindset since the beginning, and it’s what guides us today.

Our Vision

Imagine a world where every person, regardless of formal education, has a basic understanding of loans and the lending industry. We have a goal to place a free financial education into the hands and minds of every person eager to learn. We sincerely believe that education is the key to saving our economy and lessening the chances of another world-wide recession. Our vision, put simply, is to create a financially-savvy world, one reader at a time.

Our Mission

We aim to educate the public by providing relevant, interesting, unbiased, and meaningful financial information. Our team of professional writers strives to publish quality content every week so that all of our readers can keep up-to-date on current events and industry-related information. In tandem with serving as an educational resource, we also strive to provide a safe, secure, and free means for prospective borrowers to apply for financing.

Our Promise

For those looking to learn more about a particular type of financing, we promise to provide unbiased information.

For those looking for a trusted location to apply for a loan online, we develop lender relationships and promise a means to quickly and safely apply for financing.

If none of our news stories, in-depth articles, or frequently asked questions contains what you’re looking for, then we beg of you to ask us your own question, and we promise to put one of our professional writers to the task of answering it for you!
