We offer:

  • Savings or loan repayments taken automatically from your wages on Payday
    • So you’re not tempted to spend it
    • And savings build up automatically
  • Available savings can be sent electronically to your bank account
    • We don’t pay interest but when we make enough profit at the end of each year a dividend is paid to members
  • Access to some of our most competitive loan rates
  • No early repayment fees- you can repay the loan early if you can afford to
  • Interest is charged on your outstanding balance so will decrease with your decreasing balance
  • We can often help people who don’t have great credit scores
