Before you borrow funds from a lender, there are a few things you should do. The first is to determine the urgency of your need — how necessary is it that you get this money now? Many loans are best used for emergency expenses that can't be put off.
Next, you should compare different lenders' rates and terms. Check how much you can borrow, how long you have to pay it back and how much interest is charged.
Once you've found a lender who offers the terms you want, look through your finances to make sure that you will have the ability to pay back the loan. It's helpful to make a budget, calculating your income and expenses to see how much you could set aside to repay your loan. Make sure to leave yourself a savings buffer for future surprise expenses!
