There are many benefits to an overdraft loan. It offers a short term loan to borrowers that provide them with a small amount of additional money until they receive their wage. The repayment is deducted as soon as money is put into the bank which leaves no outstanding loans to repay. The loan can also be extended immediately when required. This helps meet the needs of the borrower.
The downside to overdraft loans is that when money enters your account, it is immediately taken to cover the overdraft loan repayment. This means that you have no control over when and how the loan is repaid and can leave you unexpectedly short of money. When the overdraft limit is exceeded, charges are placed on the account. This happens every time you try to spend money on your account that is not available. This can add up to a large sum of money.
