The credit score of a person is determined by the credit history created based on the repayment history, the number of existing loans, the length of credit history, and the types of credit availed. If you have been repaying the existing loans promptly well within time, your score will be good. A combination of secured and unsecured loans is also considered good. Only availing unsecured loans indicates that you are a compulsive borrower who depends on the credit for expenses which will bring down your score.
If you have a good score you will be considered as a low-risk borrower and you will be the most welcome candidate for the Personal Loan. The risk involved in Personal Loans are higher as there will be no security for the loan and in the event of the loan going bad, the banks do not have any recourse for recovery. This is the reason the banks will look for the creditworthiness of the applicant while providing a Personal Loan.
