Regular Savers Loan

Regular Savers Loans are for members who have previously has a Starter Loan which they have successfully repaid while saving at least an additional 10% of the loan repayment into their shares in addition to their loan repayment. As with Starter Loans, approval is based on affordability, payment history and the results of a credit check, although a poor credit score will not necessarily result in a refusal.

Depending on your past loan history, you can borrow up to £1,000 for between 4 and 10 months. Interest rates are 2.5% per month flat (34.49% APR) , a saving of 0.5% per month when compared to our Starter Loan.

Just so you can get some idea of the amount you can borrow and how much it will cost in terms of monthly repayments and interest costs, we have included a calculator below. Pull the sliders around to see an illustration of what the loan could cost you, but bear in mind that there are minimum payment constraints which may apply.

  • We will carry out an affordability check based on the information you provide us to help prevent you getting into financial difficulties.
  • We will carry out a Credit Check, although a poor credit score will not necessarily mean you won’t be granted a loan.
