What makes Nifty so different from the other small amount credit providers? Well, for a start, we’re youthful.

What are medium loans?

Our medium sized loans are valued between $2001 – $4600. The repayment period for this loan category is any time between 13 – 24 months. Like all of our loans there will be an establishment fee which in this case is $400. We recommend that you to attach this loan to equity, such as a car, caravan or boat.

What are large loans?

Nifty also offer large loans with a value up to $5000. Though it’s not mandatory, we recommend you secure this loan by attaching it to some equity. The repayment period for a large loan is also 13 – 24 months.

Are there loans for unemployed people?

We like to give every Aussie the chance to get a loan. That’s why we offer a personal loan for those that are unemployed. In order to get an unemployed loan, you will need to be receiving funds from Centrelink. Our personal loans are between $300 and $5000. If you choose to take an unsecured loan, the amount can not exceed $3000 and it must be paid off within 9 months. Secured loans of more than $2000 have extended repayment periods between 13 and 24 months.

What are bad credit loans?

Bad credit scores are offered to those with lower than average credit scores. Nifty will assess your eligibility by looking at your current expenses. If it is found that you are consistently managing your money well and meeting your financial obligations, you may still be approved, even with a lower than average credit score.

What are unsecured personal loans?

Our unsecured loans do not require a security to be attached to the loan. Essentially, this means that you are still able to apply for an unsecured loan even if you do not own a vehicle or any other form of eligible asset.
Our unsecured loans start from $300 and go up to $3000 with a repayment period between 3 and 9 months. Due to the increased risk to the lender, unsecured loans can have stricter criteria as opposed to our secured loans. This is especially true for unsecured loans above $2000.

What are secured personal loans?

Secured personal loans require the attachment of an asset, something like a car or motorbike would be perfect. These loans start at $2100 and go up to $5000 with a repayment period between 9 and 24 months. As mentioned previously, the criteria for secured loans can often be more lenient than an unsecured loan as the risk to the lender is reduced.
On the other-hand, however, if a secured loan is defaulted on, the lender has the right to then reposses any asset attached. This will need to be considered before submitting an application.
