Bottom line

OppLoans personal loans are suitable for consumers who have poor or bad credit scores, who need to borrow no more than $4,000 or less and who need funding quickly. The application process is quick and easy but in many cases, borrowers will be able to find more favorable terms elsewhere.

Types of loans

Opportunity Financial offers personal loans that can be used for various purposes, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Car repairs
  • Household expenses
  • Paying rent
  • Consolidating and paying off other loans
  • Major purchases

Loan requirements

Requirements to apply for Opportunity Financial personal loan:

  1. Be U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  2. Be at least 18 years of age (19 in Alabama and Nebraska)
  3. Have at least three months’ of employment
  4. Have income history for approval
  5. Be not a covered borrower under the Military Lending Act

There is no minimum credit score for approval so we suppose that OppLoans personal loans are designed for borrowers with poor credit. Another benefit is that you do need to have a traditional bank account open in your name with at least 90 days of banking history and receive your paychecks through direct deposit.

OpportunityFinancial Reviews

They are awful. I repaid my loan earlier and they took twice out of my account. I called them every day to get my money back and they kept saying we refund it which was a lie. I had to contact a lawyer and my bank to get my money back. I am talking about $850 . Do not use this service! They are liars and scammers!

This is third time I have used this service in emergency. I highly recommend them for those who need monay for emergencies and have limited alternatives due to bad credit score. I'm really impressed. I would definitely recommend their online personal loans for tough situations.
- Nelle Keller

This was simple to get a loan. Easy and fast response. Got a text message saying my application was received, one more saying that it was reviewed ad then approved. The money was in my account the next day. It was very easy!!!
- Richard Johnson

I was having some problems with uploading docs because I'm just a beginner to the internet. And I really appreciate the patience and help of the staff. The terms and rates are so much better than other lenders. I highly recommend OppLoans to everyone.
- Juan Webb

When I need extra funds, I always apply for a loan with OppLoans. Their loans are fast! I always have the funds in my account the next day! cool service. I would tell all my family and friends about this service! I will definitely use this service if I need another loan!
- Edison Moll

They refused to lower my interest rate when I was about to pay off my loan before the due date. I don't know how they can legally charge such high interest in personal short-term loans but yet they say they are helping consumers with poor credit. I've already repaid my loan completely and I still owe another almost $1500. Ridiculous.
- Dorothy Kraemer

It's always a pleasure dealing with this lender. Love their customer service. Fast response. You're treated with respect. I can recommend OppLoans to everyone. They are honest people. Had wonderful experience
- Beatriz Gonzalez

I found out I gave them the wrong name and they are refusing to correct and update my contact information! This is the worst customer service I've ever seen. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!!! FIND ANOTHER LENDER!
- David Gervais

They are the best!!!! They make it so easy! I have been dealing with them for at least 4 years. I also appreciate how after three months they give you an opportunity to refinance if you want to! They are amazing and very honest.
