Most Common Government Loans

By

Government loans come in a variety of flavors. You can get a government loan to go to school, buy a home, run a business, and more. This list shows the most common government loan programs.

Education Loans

If you need to pay for school, there are government loans available to both students and parents. If you're lucky, you may qualify for subsidized loans - meaning you don't have to pay interest on some government loans while you're in school.

Government Loans for Housing

The government has an interest in home ownership. Therefore, they have programs available to encourage and assist buyers.

Business Loans

A rising tide floats all boats. If you need help starting your venture, shop government loan programs first.

Non-Government Loans

As an alternative to government loans, you can borrow from individuals through peer to peer lending. There are tradeoffs of course, but you might find the loan you need.
