minimum income for purchasing
Even if you have a low credit score and a poor credit history, a job can be your saving grace if you’re in desperate need of an auto loan. Minimum income requirements ensure applicants can make the monthly payments, mitigating the risks for lenders loaning to low-credit borrowers and increasing the chances of a low-credit borrower’s application being accepted. A reliable income also helps reduce the risk of a borrower being unable to make a payment and potentially worsening their financial situation.
