Checking the credit history of any borrower is the most important step in any lending process. Lenders do this for obvious reasons but most of the borrowers hate undergoing credit checks, which disclose their credit history to strangers. This is especially true for those having poor credit history or frequent defaults. There are many reasons for which people like these type of online loans. It could be that they do not have any credit history or they do not want to undergo the humiliation of a credit check. Whatever the reason might be, but the fact remains that the lender does not have a clear picture about how a particular borrower has fared in the credit market and how good is he at the repayments. Indeed, the risk is greater for the lenders in giving a loan.
