What interest rate will I be charged?
We offer competitive interest rates for Personal Loans.

Interest rates are not fixed and are subject to change.
Will my credit history be checked?
Yes. If you have previously had credit issues we will still review your application, but will need to get a good understanding of the circumstances that surrounded those issues so we can make a fair assessment of your current situation.
