Credit Score Required for Personal Installment Loans by Lender

You can borrow $25,000 with no credit check from a friend or family member, a pawnshop or an auto title lender.

Places to Get a $25,000 Loan With No Credit Check
Friends and family: There’s no limit on the amount you can borrow from friends and family, as long as they’re willing to lend it. Just be sure to have a solid repayment plan so you don’t ruin your relationship.
Pawnshops: Pawnshops typically offer 25% - 60% of an item’s value and give you time to repay that money with interest to reclaim the item. The interest is expensive, though.
Auto title lenders: You can get a loan for 15 to 30 days of around 25% to 50% of the value of your car. But if you can’t pay it back – with interest as high as 25% of what you borrow – you could lose your car.
There are also quite a few lenders that offer secured personal loans, which are relatively easy to qualify for because the borrower provides collateral that the lender can keep if they default. But there’s typically a credit check during the approval process for secured personal loans.
You will likely need a credit score of at least 660 for a $25,000 personal loan.

Other common loan requirements include being at least 18 years old; being a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or visa holder; and having a valid bank account.… read full answer
Credit Score Required by Lenders That Offer $25,000 Personal Loans
Lenders tend to have large loan ranges, and their minimum requirements for approval (credit score, income and other factors) will determine whether you can get at least the lowest loan amount. But the higher your credit score and income are, the greater the amount you're likely to qualify for.
Even if your credit score is 660, you won't necessarily be approved for a $25,000 loan. Your chances of approval do get better the higher your score is above the minimum requirement, though. The best way to see your odds of approval and what rates may be available to you is to add your desired loan amount to WalletHub's free pre-qualification tool. This tool won't hurt your credit score.
