What can a bad credit loan be used for?
Firstly, what do we mean by the term "bad credit loan"? Well, at Fair Go Finance, a bad credit loan is a personal loan provided to people with bad credit. Because there are many different levels of bad credit, we are not able to help every bad credit customer, but we do specialise in providing bad credit loans to customers with the following types of listings on their credit file.
- Paid defaults
- Unpaid defaults
- Bankruptcy or Part IX debt agreement (where you entered into bankruptcy over 12 months ago.)
If you think you have bad credit, it's important you understand exactly what is on your credit file before you apply for a loan and speak to the lender to make sure you meet their criteria. You can obtain a free copy from Equifax.
A bad credit loan with Fair Go Finance can be used for things like:
- consolidating bills
- buying a car
- car expenses/repairs
- property bond
- pet expenses
- medical expenses
- school and education fees
- home renovations
in fact, any legal personal expense!
Why does Fair Go Finance provide bad credit loans?
Fair Go Finance understands that sometimes people hit difficult times throughout their life. Knowing that Banks have very strict policies and prefer clean credit customers, Fair Go Finance realised there were a lot of Aussies who could afford a personal loan, but weren't getting approved purely because of their bad credit history. Consequently, Fair Go Finance included a bad credit loan into their product offering which allows for certain levels of bad credit. Here is what some of our bad credit customers have said:
- "Quick, friendly, understanding call staff. You are not made to feel small or unworthy as you can do at banks or other places."
- "Fantastic service and genuine Fair Go!"
- "You gave me a go when no other lender would."
