Applying for a Home Equity Loan is easy. Simply fill out the Consumer Loan Application and submit it along with copies of one month paycheck stubs for both the Applicant and the Co-Applicant.

Credit Builder Loans

Good credit is a vital part of your financial health. No credit history? Are you looking to boost your credit score? First Eagle’s Credit Builder Loan can help. The Credit Builder Loan is a combination low-interest loan and savings program that helps you establish a good payment history, an important step in building a higher credit score. You borrow from $250 to $2,500 for 12, 18 or 24 months. The money you borrow is placed in a Savings Account which earns interest. When you make your final loan payment, you can withdraw the money from the Savings Account, or you can leave it invested so it continues to grow. By the end of your 12, 18, or 24 month Credit Builder Loan, you should see an improved credit score (based on your payment history) and you’ll have a jump start on savings. Below are payment examples and APRs.  Click here for our Credit Builder loan application.
