We’re here to help our customers make the right loan choice. There are many different and sometimes confusing loan names used by various lenders, so we’d like to help you by clearing up the confusion.
When describing this loan, it’s easier to describe what a secured loan is first.
Basically, a secured loan is where the lender uses an asset of yours – such as a car, house or boat – as security. If you don’t pay back the loan, they have the right to take this asset.
This is why a secured loan generally offers slightly lower interest rates compared to unsecured loans as it offers the lender security that they’ll get their money back.
With unsecured loans, however, no asset is required. This makes it a higher risk to the lender.
With our Cash Advance loan (available in-store), you can borrow any amount from $100 to $2,000 with a default repayment term of 4 – 6 weeks (though flexible loan terms may be available upon assessment).
With our Small Personal loan, you can borrow any amount from $400 to $2,000 and the repayment period is 2 to 12 months.
With our unsecured Medium Personal loan, you can borrow any amount from $2,050 to $5,000* with a repayment period of 4 to 24 months.
*Deposit into bank account up to a maximum of $4,600, due to the establishment fee being financed under MACC loan.

Our Cash Advance Loans incur a 20% Establishment Fee and a 4% monthly fee, based on the amount borrowed. For example, a small loan of $100 over 4 weeks has fees and charges totalling $24 (1 x $20 + 1 x $4), resulting in a total repayment of $124. Cash Advance Loans are only available in-store with a minimum loan term of 4 weeks. The maximum term is generally 6 weeks, however is flexible at the discretion of the store.
Our Small Personal Loans incur a 20% Establishment Fee and a 4% monthly fee, based on the amount borrowed. For example, a small loan of $1,000 over 9 months has fees and charges totalling $560 (1 x $200 + 9 x $40), resulting in a total repayment of $1,560. The minimum loan term is 2 months and a maximum of 12 months.
Our Medium Personal Loans incur a $400 establishment fee and interest at 48% per annum. For example, a medium loan of $3,000 borrowed over 1 year would equate to a total amount payable of $4,258 (including a $400 establishment fee). The maximum loan term is 24 months.
Our loans are repayable in weekly, fortnightly or monthly instalments. Loans can be settled early with no penalty and fees will only be charged whilst there is an outstanding balance on the loan, hence early settlement will reduce the amount payable on the loan. Loans are subject to assessment criteria and suitability. An APR (Annual Percentage Rate) does not apply to our Cash Advance Loans or Small Personal Loans. The maximum APR on our Medium Personal Loan is 144.02%.
