  • Overview

    A personal line of credit is a flexible, revolving credit option that allows you to borrow money up to a pre-approved limit as needed. Think of it like a credit card, but with a higher credit limit and more flexible repayment terms.

    With a personal line of credit, you can use the funds for any purpose, from home renovations to unexpected medical expenses to travel and leisure. You only pay interest on the amount you borrow, and as you pay back the principal, the available credit replenishes so that you can use it again.

    It’s an excellent option for those who want the flexibility and convenience of a credit card but with lower interest rates and more manageable monthly payments.

    People Driven Credit Union is a full-service credit union with branches and ATMs that are easily accessible around Metro Detroit and Southeast Michigan.

    How a PLC differs from other loans

    A personal line of credit differs from a traditional personal loan in that you don’t have set payments over a specific repayment period.

    credit line allows you to borrow in increments, repay it and borrow again as long as the line remains open. Typically, you will be required to pay interest on borrowed balance while the line is open for borrowing, which makes it different from a conventional loan, which is repaid in fixed installments.  A line of credit will have a set limit in which you will be approved for and you can borrow based off the limit.
