Firstly, what is a debt consolidation loan?
‘Consolidating’, in the context of debt, means taking out a new loan which is used to either instantly pay off all or significantly reduce other existing debt. In simple terms, a debt consolidation loan removes the complications of juggling multiple loans from multiple lenders, and putting it together into one loan with one payment to make.
How can a debt consolidation loan benefit me?
Let’s take a closer look at how a debt consolidation loan can help you.

Improving your credit score
A debt consolidation loan can also help you improve your credit score. For example, if you are consistently making late payments on multiple overdue accounts, you may be significantly damaging your credit score.
Staying on top of repayments becomes a lot easier with just one easy to manage loan, and can help get you back on the road to rebuilding your credit again.
The burden of managing multiple debts, from multiple lenders, can be detrimental not only financially, but also to your overall wellbeing. High interest rates, late repayment fees and bank charges can often lead to a sense of entrapment, making it extremely difficult to find a way out.
