Low-rate loans secured by your savings or certificates

Pearl Hawaii’s savings and certificate secured loans are loans that are secured by the amount available on deposit. The funds are kept in your account for a specific period of time-based on the terms of the loan.  The money collects interest while in the account, which will offset the interest charged on the loan. Build good credit while getting a low rate that won’t break the bank. It works much like a personal loan and is available to help people with a variety of expenses. When the loan is paid off, you can utilize the funds in your account or the certificate can be redeemed.


  • Borrow against your Pearl Hawaii savings account or certificate and receive a low-rate loan while still earning interest on your financial resources on deposit
  • No credit checks required
  • No verification of income required
  • Loans are secured by funds in your savings account or certificate
  • A good alternative to paying higher-cost credit card debt
  • An easy application process with no credit review
  • Continue to accrue dividends during the loan period
  • Affordable credit life and disability insurance** available

Overall, secured loans can help you build your credit history or repair bad credit faster. While this can be an advantage, you also need to carefully consider whether you can repay the loan and whether you can lose the asset you’re using as collateral. In the end, the ultimate goal should be to rely as little as possible on debt.
