What is NILS?

No interest and no charges, EVER

Washing machine broke down? Unexpected car repairs? Car registration due? Need a new laptop for work or school? Moving and need support with bond or rent in advance?

Unexpected expenses are bound to pop up from time to time. NILs help you manage your money and you only pay back what you borrow, nothing more.

How does NILS work

Once your application is approved, submit your invoice and NILs will pay the cost of these essentials straight to the supplier/shop. Loans cannot be used for cash, bills or debts.

How much can I borrow?

No Interest Loans (NILs) enable people and families access to fair, safe and affordable credit to purchase essential goods and services up to the maximum value of $2000.

For certain loan purposes such as bond and rent in advance, or in circumstances where you have been impacted by a natural disaster we may be able to provide up to $3000.
