If you are asking if you can get a loan due to credit issues, then the answer is "yes" so long as your credit score and debt-to-income ratio are satisfactory to a lender. If you are asking if the bankruptcy court will permit it, then the answer is "maybe." You have to petition the bankruptcy court to get any new loans during the chapter 13 case, usually by filing a "Motion to Incur New Debt" and explaining therein why you want the loan, how much it will be for, payment amount, interest rate, etc. If the court thinks it is reasonable, they will grant permission. If the court thinks it is a bad deal for you or jeopardizes your ability to pay the creditors you have, the court will deny it. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts and law, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person. Speak to a lawyer for specific advice. Thanks!
