A personal line of credit (affectionately known as a PLOC) functions like a credit card without the plastic. You’ll be approved for a total amount you can borrow, then you can make additional advances (aka withdrawals up to that amount) whenever you want — without a loan officer’s approval.
Cover the big things one little bit at a time.
Rather than being your go-to source for everyday purchases, this loan shines brightest as a resource for paying your way through big, ever-changing cost situations like home renovation projects or much-needed vacations. A PLOC stands apart from traditional loans because you get to control how much you withdraw and when, and you’ll only pay variable interest on the money you use, not the full amount.

The two biggest differences between a Personal Loan and a Personal Line of Credit are the types of interest rates for each loan and how one receives their funds. Personal Loans are fixed-rate loans and they are given to the member in one large lump sum. Personal Lines of Credit are variable rate loans and members receive access to a line of credit. They can borrow as much as they need without having to commit to a large lump sum.
A Personal Line of Credit (often abbreviated to PLOC) is a loan that functions similarly to a credit card (sans plastic.) You apply for a certain amount of funds and once you’re approved for a total amount to borrow, you’ll make advances (aka withdrawals) up to that amount whenever you want — zero fees or additional approval required. It helps to think about a PLOC like a life line that you tug on when you need a little bit of extra support. Just tug on the line and make withdrawals that work for you. This means you are only borrowing the money you need to complete a project, not one giant lump sum like a traditional loan.
Yes! You can make additional payments on your Personal Line of Credit.
This loan is great for projects that don't have a fixed price. If you are remodeling your kitchen, adding a deck to your home, paying for some additional college courses, etc. this is a great option for you. It allows you the flexibility to borrow what you need instead of requiring you to borrow a larger sum.
As many times as you would like. There is no limit to how many times you can make a withdrawal on a PLOC.
