Hawaii Unsecured Promissory Note Template

The Hawaii Unsecured Promissory Note Template is a legal form that describes the various terms of a loan (such as the payment information, interest rates, principal sum, etc.). Unsecured notes differ from secured ones in that they do not have the backing of the borrower’s pledged collateral. The template is available for download in .PDF or Word format. The .PDF file can be filled out and signed electronically.

Note: The maximum interest rate in the State of Hawaii is 10% (according to H.R.S. 478-2).
