We are quick Personal Loan specialists
Unlike many other short term loan products, our 12 month Personal Loan repayment period is suitably long to give you some breathing space while repaying. This means your repayments are generally smaller than the Payday loans you may have used in the past. In many cases we are able to approve a higher loan amount suited to your needs, as our repayments are spread out over a longer time frame. A Jacaranda loan can be paid out at any point with no additional payout fee.
Customer service is key to us
We like to look after our customers. Our dedicated team of real customer service operators are available via phone or email during normal business hours. They pride themselves on providing the best customer service possible throughout the whole Jacaranda experience. We see transparency as a key factor in a business transaction. Our services are aimed at making your life a little easier, not a lot harder.
We understand that no one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes
Credit History plays a very small role in our loan assessments. Jacaranda will consider your loan application regardless of the mistakes you may have made in the past. Our specially trained assessment team will look at factors beyond your Credit History. We will do an assessment on your application providing your current financial situation is good, and our assessment deems that the loan will not be unsuitable for you.
Everything is out in the open
Jacaranda Personal Loans comply with all relevant Commonwealth and State Legislation. There are no hidden fees or surprises. We are very transparent, and all of the costs associated with our loan products are described in detail. There is no obligation to take us up on an approved loan. If you are not happy with what is on offer you may withdraw your request at no cost.

Example of how our small personal loans work.
- Loan Amounts: Minimum $400 to Maximum $2,000.
- Terms: Minimum 16 weeks to Maximum 50 weeks.
- Costs: Up to 20% Establishment Fee charged upfront plus a monthly fee up to 4%. Under the current legislation Jacaranda Finance Pty Ltd does not charge an annual interest rate. You may know this as Annual Percentage Rate or APR(%).
- Example: Loan Amount of $1,000 over 50 weeks repayable weekly $1,000 (Principle Amount)+ $200 (20% Establishment Fee) + $480 (fees based on 4% per month over 50 weeks) = $1,680 total repayable in 50 weekly installments of $33.60.
Example of how our medium secured personal loans work.
- Loan Amounts: Minimum $2001 to Maximum $4,600.
- Terms: Minimum 13 months to Maximum 24 months.
- Costs: Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 48%. Comparison rate is 66.0347% p.a. This comparison rate is based on a Jacaranda Secured Medium Loan for an amount of $2500 over 2 years and a $400 establishment fee. Fees and charges are payable.
- Example: Loan Amount of $3,000 over 18 months repayable weekly $3,000 (Principle Amount)+ $400 (Establishment Fee) + $1378.87 (other fees) = $4,840.14 total repayable over 18 months with weekly instalments of $61.27.
