Loan Direct Can Help you

To Get a Loan

Loan Direct provides loans to people with a poor credit history, helping them access loans quickly and affordably. There isn’t a lending situation we haven’t encountered before and we can find solutions for most.

There are many reasons why people end up with a bad credit score, and sometimes it’s not entirely their fault. They may have lost their job, became ill and were unable to work, faced unexpected expenses, acted as a guarantor for someone who defaulted on payments and so on.

Life is unpredictable and when you find yourself in a spot of trouble, it helps to have a friendly team that will listen to you without judgement. If you can provide a reasonable explanation for your credit history, we’ll do everything we can to get your personal loan approved.

How Do You Choose a

Bad Credit Loan Company?

The most important thing to know when choosing who to apply with for a bad credit loan is that there are two types of lenders:

1. High-cost lenders 
2. Low-cost lenders

Sadly, many people think that if they have a bad credit history, High-cost Lenders are their only option. But these types of loans attract high fees, and interest rates of over 50% per annum and have shorter repayment periods. In times of stress, the last thing you need is to put yourself under more pressure.

By taking on a high-cost and short-term loan, you’re more likely not to be able to meet your repayments, and so your credit score will decline even further.

Loan Direct

Can Help You Access an Affordable Loan

Loan Direct is different. We can help you access an affordable loan with lower interest rates and fair conditions. We arrange loans that are reasonable and structured to help you meet your repayments on time. By ensuring you have the ability to comfortably meet your repayments, you’ll be able to improve your credit score. We help you achieve this through:

  • Lower interest rates, because we only use low-cost lenders
  • Longer repayment terms, so it’s easier for you to meet your repayments
  • Timing your repayments with when you get paid, so it’s easier to budget

Loan Direct wants to give our clients some breathing room, not place them under more pressure. We strive to set you up for repayment success, not failure. We can provide more loan options than others, so you can work towards improving your finances.

Can You Get a Small Loan

With Bad Credit?

Absolutely! Loan Direct can provide loans for people with bad credit. Types of loans include:

Loan amounts start at $1,500 and go up to $75,000 unsecured*, and more if want a secured loan*.

The period of time your loan is structured for will depend on how much you’re borrowing, and what you can afford to pay each month.

*Subject to responsible lending checks and lending criteria.

What Is The Lending Criteria For

A Bad Credit Loan?

Lenders look at three key factors when making application decisions:

  • Affordability – can you meet your loan payments?
  • Regular income – is regular & consistent income going into your bank account?
  • Equity/Security – is a loan with collateral the best option for you? Not always, but in some cases the lenders will require some form of security. Secured or equity loans are a valid loan option if you’re falling short of meeting our lending criteria.

This will help to ensure you don’t miss repayments in the future, so you can rebuild your credit score. Every time you pay a bill or make a payment on time, it helps improve your credit score.
