Quick and easy to apply, low APR, no hidden fees, and no interest on your birthday!
Your reason for borrowing could be anything from debt consolidation to investing in a business. We ask every customer why they want to borrow, however we judge on affordability not on loan purpose.
Growing a business?
There are often a number of costs if you have your own business. Whether it’s buying stock, office rental or marketing. You may not have a dragon to help you but 118 118 Money can! Whether you are employed or self-employed we can loan up to £5,000, providing you demonstrate the monthly payments over one to two years are affordable.
Do your research before applying for a £5,000 loan
It’s important to spend time researching prospective loans before making an application, because each time you apply for a loan, your credit history is checked and this could in turn lower your credit score.
Ensure you will be able to pay back the £5,000 loan
You can spread your monthly repayments for your loan over 1 to 2 years. It all depends on your affordability and preference. If you predict any problems with your loan at any time during the term, speak to the 118 118 Money team as soon as possible on 0800 0118000 or 02920 893300 to see if we can help.
