Debt Consolidation Loans for Bad Credit

I need to speak with an expert about if debt consolidation loans are attainable for people with bad credit. If so, what other qualifications must be met in order to get a loan? Are there alternatives to a debt consolidation loan for people with bad credit? (Ex: Balance transfer, Debt mgmt plan, HELOC) What alternatives are viable for people with poor credit?Requirements: Must be a financial expert, not a financial blogger.
