Wisconsin Unsecured Promissory Note Template

The Wisconsin Unsecured Promissory Note Template was created to be used as a starting point when drafting an unsecured note. Unsecured notes, in direct contrast to secured notes, do not require the borrower to pledge collateral. The template posted on this page should only be used to draft an unsecured note.
