Personal loans

  • What is Responsible Lending?

    At People's Choice Credit Union we understand that credit is a very important facility which allows you to achieve your personal, financial or lifestyle goals faster than you could if you had to rely on your savings alone.

    As a mutually owned financial institution we embrace our responsibility to understand your personal situation when we make recommendations regarding providing, extending or arranging credit for you. This is to ensure you are reasonably likely to meet the obligations you have in respect of repaying the debt and avoid experiencing financial stress.

    But we recognise that situations may change from time to time which may inhibit your ability to meet your credit repayment obligations. We understand the pressures that you and your family may experience during these difficult times and we work with you to find a mutually acceptable solution to aid in your overall debt management strategies and to continue to work with you to achieve your financial goals.

  • What is the difference between debt consolidation and refinancing?

    Debt consolidation is the process of combining (consolidating) all of your debts into the one debt. The benefits of debt consolidation are to potentially save you money and to make it easier for you to manage your debt with a single repayment.

The benefits of refinancing varies, however usually a more favourable debt includes lower interest rates or ongoing fees, potentially saving you money over time.
