Well now you could get what you want. With our personal loan you could choose the amount you need for that special something and a repayment plan that suits you. Enjoy your life today and let us help provide the finance.


Here’s what you get with our personal loan

For a Personal or Car Loan, you can spread your repayments up to a maximum of 5 years for loans less than 12,000 or up to a maximum of 7 years for loans greater than 12,000. You can borrow up to 10 years for a Home Improvement Loan. 5. No additional fees if the loan is paid off early We’re here to offer you financial assistance when you need it. If you find your position changes and you want to pay off your loan early, that’s great. We won’t penalise you for being prudent! 6. More peace of mind If you feel you’d like extra reassurance that your repayments could be covered even if you can’t work, we can give you the option of Personal Loan Protector (PLP) insurance. Please note that this option is only available on loan terms up to a maximum of 5 years (please refer to policy terms for restrictions, benefits and exclusions)*. With it you’ll be safe knowing that your repayments could still be made every month.
