Why apply for a small loan with Savvy?

Frequently asked questions about loans for food

Is it possible to get a loan for food with bad credit?

Yes – it's possible to get a loan for food even with bad credit, assuming your profile is approved by your lender. Lenders offering food loans take a more adaptable approach, considering factors beyond just credit history. This increases the likelihood of obtaining a loan for essential needs, even with less-than-perfect credit.

Can I clear my small loan before the scheduled time?

Yes – you can clear your small loan before the scheduled time. Small loans come without early repayment penalties, so repaying it early is a way to reduce the overall fees you’ll pay.

Can I allocate the funds from my food loan for needs beyond covering food expenses?

Yes – beyond covering food expenses, you can allocate the funds from your food loan for various needs. For instance, if you have extra funds, you may choose to address additional financial requirements such as a new phone. However, keep in mind that certain restrictions apply to the use of these funds, such as settling other small loans or gambling.

How much will my food loan cost?

The primary costs associated with your food loan include the establishment fee (capped at $400) and monthly fees (capped at 48% of your loan’s total value per year). The exact amount you pay depends on factors like:

  • The loan amount
  • The chosen loan term (between 16 days and two years)
  • Your preferred repayment plan (weekly, fortnightly or monthly)
  • Whether you make additional repayments
  • The potential impact of conditional fees, such as late repayment or dishonour fees
