  • Fairly priced products which we promote in a balanced way showing the risks as well as the benefits.
  • Clear information on the cost of your borrowing, including all fees and charges and our terms and conditions.
  • An assessment of your ability to make regular payments and repay the loan is performed using innovative and proven credit assessment techniques.
  • Your credit line amount will be limited to an amount that we believe will ensure you don't overstretch your finances and which will allow for some increase in expenditure.
  • As a signatory of the Code of Lending Practice – AFIA Online Small Business Lenders Code of Practice, we are committed to issuing every loan offer with the transparency and disclosure standards outlined in the Code. You can find the Code here or for further information please refer to the AFIA Website.

  • If we offer to lend you money we will always provide clear information to help you make an informed decision. If you have financial problems, formal proceedings will be a last resort, only after we have exhausted all other attempts to reach an agreement with you.
