What are small loans?

A small personal loan is a short-term finance option that allows you to borrow a small amount of money between $300 and $2,000. The length of this type of loan can be as little as 16 days or as much as 12 months, depending on the lender. Nifty’s small loan terms vary from 6 to 9 months. 

Small loans are a popular solution for urgent cash needs. Sometimes we encounter unexpected expenses such as emergency repairs, medical bills, etc. You could pay compounding high-interest rates on a credit card or wait days for a traditional lender to approve you for a personal loan. But why give yourself the stress? With Nifty, you won’t have to deal with mountains of paperwork or long waiting periods. Nifty can provide fast small loans to help you navigate through any emergency easily and smoothly.

How can I get a small loan with bad credit?

It’s easy! Apply online with Nifty and we could have an answer for you in under 60 minutes.* While some lenders won’t provide loans to applicants with poor credit histories, we give all of our applications a fair assessment. Unfortunate events such as medical bills, car repairs and other large unexpected expenses can affect anyone and their credit score. That’s why you can lean on Nifty to help you out with small loans for bad credit.

What other types of loans does Nifty offer? 

Nifty offers small, medium and large loans which you can apply for. Before you apply, it’s a good idea to check out the details and see what is going to work best for your circumstances.

Small loans

Nifty offers small loans from $300 to $2,000 that can be repaid over a 6-9 month period. Small loans don’t require collateral as security, such as a car or boat as they are unsecured. So, they are the perfect quick fix. If you’ve run into trouble and need a quick fix then a small loan might be for you. 

Medium loans

Medium loans are available for cash between $2,100 to $4,600 and can be repaid over a period of 9 to 24 months. You’ll need to attach an asset as security for a medium loan – this is what we call equity or collateral. Equity could be anything from a car to a motorbike or a caravan. 

Large loans

Large loans are personal loans available at $5,000. The repayment period on large loans can also be repaid over a 9 – 24 month period. Large loans are also secured. 

Here’s a quick overview of our three loan products:

Small LoansUnsecured$300 – $2,000
