Viewing Money Lenders in a New Light

Aug 18, 2007
Whenever I think of money lenders, the first name that comes to my mind is that of Shylock, the Jewish money lender in Shakespeare's popular drama, The Merchant of Venice. Shakespeare's money lender characterized the old stereotype prevalent at the time that money lenders were unfeeling and cruel people, emerging at the most inopportune times like leeches to drain off the money of the unfortunate borrowers.

Thankfully, this stereotype is no longer as prevalent as it used to be. Perhaps part of the reason is that the moneylenders in the world of today are not individuals. Instead, they are corporations. It is far more difficult to associate human failings such as dislike, bitterness, and the desire for revenge, with corporations. Sure, they may be made up of a number of individuals, each of whom has a distinct failing. But despite that, the general belief is that the sheer numbers of people will keep the organization fair.

In the world of today, everyone seeks out loans in an attempt to afford more and more things. Thanks to the sudden growth in the field of loans, we can now make use of things that would otherwise have remained beyond our reach. These days, we can think of buying the dream house without those decades of work life. In the world today, studying in the best universities is not as out-of-the-way as it used to be. Who should we be thanking? The money lenders of today -- the finance companies.

Of course, just as we cannot associate human failings with corporations themselves, should not expect them to be kind and generous either. All they are doing is business, and we should be professional in our dealings with them as well. But what if you are just not able to repay a particular loan?

Relax! Life is no longer as tough for a defaulting debtor. If you find yourself in such a situation, you should think about going in for an Individual Voluntary Agreement (IVA). By doing this, you are getting into a legal agreement with your creditors, promising to pay them an amount that is feasible as per your monthly income, for a period of five years. After that, the remainder of the debt will be written off.

It does appear to be a bad deal for the creditors of the world. But then, not just anyone can avail of an IVA for debt relief. To apply, you have to be a full time employee, and there will be checks on the inflow and outflow of cash. And if you are worried that you will not get loans in the future, don't worry. Most loan companies have a vast selection of adverse credit loans for people like you.
