There has been a global decline in the economies of the major countries of the world, no thanks to the fall in the price of oil and the Corona Virus ravaging the world. It has been a difficult time for the world at large with over 50,000 deaths recorded already in the United States. Online loans are here to help with the needs of the population more than ever.
This has led to businesses being shut down and people not being able to go out as there as been a stay at home order to prevent the spread of this deadly virus. The world is in crisis but, how does this affect online loans? And how will the industry manage the crisis during this period and also how will the loan industry stay healthy even when the pandemic is over?
These are questions begging for answers. We will look at how best this crisis can be managed in the sections to follow.
In the first week of April 2020, over 5.2 million Americans became unemployed. This led to over 2.2 million jobs lost in the past months. What this means is that the increase in unemployment will have to see lenders set aside huge amounts to cushion the effects of most Americans not being able to pay for their auto loans, credit cards, and home mortgages among others.
According to data obtained from the New York fintech, loan delinquencies are becoming a serious issue for online lenders already.
About 12% of consumer loans by online lenders were already impaired as of April 9, 2020. This means that most borrowers have missed payment dates by asking for an extension of the due date or not making payment at all without any hope of paying any time soon. This is becoming an alarming occurrence for people in the loan business and it is the reality of our time. The best thing to do now is to find a way to find the right balance such that the loan companies can cope while still providing relief loans to consumers.
Data coming from the Federal Reserve shows that credit issues among online loans have surged beyond the bad recession level and heading towards the Depression-like levels.
There are certain industries that have been adversely affected by this global pandemic. Some of these industries include the entertainment, tourism, and hospitality industries. This is already telling on some tourism-dependent states like Hawaii and Nevada. Loan impairments soared to around 16% and for borrowers with very impressive credit scores of around 740, impairment has more than tripled to 7.5%. for borrowers with credit scores lower than 650, the impairment rates are now around 20%. It’s trying times for both borrowers and lenders.
It has not been any easy to credit the regular credit card lenders. Most of them have reported no meaningful progress in delinquent card payment in the past month.
In order to help borrowers cope with the times we are, most online lenders have had to modify due dates for payment. This might have to continue for some time and also there will be considerations to accommodate the current reality of our time when lending to borrowers. At least to ensure that both the lenders and borrowers are good.
