A common example of a character loan is a credit card. Before obtaining a credit card, the issuer checks the borrower's credit report (i.e. character), and determines how likely the borrower is to repay the loan. The issuer then decides on how large of a credit line (i.e. loan) it will allow. Borrowers with poor credit or no credit may be unable to obtain a credit card, or may be extended only a very small credit line.
