Missouri Unsecured Promissory Note Template

TheĀ Missouri Unsecured Promissory Note Template is a written agreement, entered into by a lender and borrower, that outlines the principal sum, installment/payment amount, interest rate(s), and other facets of a loan. Unsecured notes, unlike secured ones, are not backed by assets pledged from the borrower. In the event of default, the lender’s only recourse is to file a civil suit against the borrower. Due to the inherent risk of loss for the lender, unsecured notes are typically only used for borrowers who are “low risk.”
