What the bad credit is and how to deal with
Bad credit is a situation where the debtor either individuals or companies cannot afford to pay the loans on time. In the world of credit cards, bad credit is a problem where credit card users can not afford the minimum payments that are overdue for more than 3 months. In the world of banking, the bad debt is known as Non-Performing Loan (NPL). The term may sound familiar, but it is very important for banks to keep their NPL. What is the relation? NPL is an indicator in assessing the performance of a bank. If a bank has a low NPL, then the bank is relatively healthy. If a bank has a high NPL, then the bank can be considered as “sick”.
If the NPL is too high above determined limits, the sustainability of the bank could be threatened. That is why all banks continue to keep their NPL value always at a lower rate. NPL is not judged by the performance of the bank only, but especially from the debtors.
Bad credit is not a problem if one or two of the debtor are not disciplined in repaying their credit card loans, but in fact there are a lot of credit card users can’t pay their installments and this condition can endanger the bank. In other side we, as creditor, should pay off every single installment to ensure our loans are not getting bigger.
If you are the one who can’t pay off your loans or installments you need to consult a count negotiator. Actually, before you discuss your issues with the negotiator, you can begin to perform various completions with a series of steps, such as:
