To be eligible for LendingUSA financing, you’ll need to be at least 18 years old with a Social Security number and reside in a state where LendingUSA does business. On the underwriting side, you’ll go through a credit check to determine your credit history, income and ability to repay the loan.

LendingUSA does not disclose specific loan qualifications or minimum requirements, but some applicants may be declined due to a low credit score, insufficient income or other financial factors.

What Credit Score Do You Need?

LendingUSA does not disclose the minimum credit score or other credit requirements for approval.

LendingUSA operates in all states but the following: Colorado, Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, North Dakota, New Hampshire, Nevada, New York, Vermont and West Virginia. It also doesn’t lend in any U.S. territory.

LendingUSA was founded in 2015 to be a lending solution for merchants. The company offers point-of-sale financing to more than 10,000 merchant partners in veterinary, chiropractic, dermatology, general health care and other industries.

You apply for LendingUSA loans online, typically at the service provider’s location. The first step is to see if you are preapproved for the loan and check your rate. In a couple of minutes, you’ll get a decision. If you go forward and complete the full application, then there will be a hard credit pull.

From there, the loan goes through the underwriting process, which typically takes between three and five business days. Once the loan is approved, you’ll have 30 days to make your first payment.

LendingUSA offers loans for medical services (audiology, chiropractic, cosmetic surgery, dental, dermatology, general health care, vision, medical devices and weight loss); funeral services; pet services (veterinary and pet retail); and consumer services.

  • Medical services loans range from $1,000 to $47,500, but some industries have lower caps.
  • Funeral services loans range from $1,000 to $25,000.
  • Pet services loans range from $1,000 to $12,000.
  • Consumer services loans range from $1,000 to $47,500.
