What are emergency loans for people with bad credit?

Emergency loans for bad credit are personal loans designed for people in bad credit that need a fast, short term loan. We offer three categories for people that need an emergency loan: small loans, medium loans and large loans.

Loan type Loan amount Repayment options
Small loans $1,000 to $2,000 6 to 12 months
Medium loans $2,100 to $4,600 13 to 36 months
Large loans $5,000 to $15,000 13 to 36 months

Our small loans are unsecured loans. Medium and large personal loans with Jacaranda Finance are secured loans; this means you must have an asset to use against your loan as security. If you would like a more detailed breakdown of our loan options, please refer to our costs page.

FAQs about emergency loans for bad credit

How much can I borrow?

You can apply to borrow any amount from $1,000 to $15,000 for your desired expenses. Our team will assess your affordability using your current bank statements to ensure you can manage your loan. Your repayments will vary depending on how much you borrow.

What are the fees and charges?

The fees and charges will change depending on how much you borrow. We offer three loan types that each accompany different fees and charges. Additionally, if you have a bad credit history, you will likely be offered a higher interest rate due to higher risk for the lender. If you have good credit, you will be offered the most favourable loan options. Your loan contract will include all fees and charges.ย 

Do you conduct credit checks?

In line with responsible lending guidelines set by ASIC, we are required to conduct credit checks on every loan application we receive. We do not provide loans with no credit check, but you may find a loan that suits your needs even with a bad credit score.

How do I pay back my loan?

We will set up a direct debit in line with your current pay cycle. On your selected day, your repayments will automatically be deducted from your account. When your loan has been repaid in full, your direct debits will stop.

Do you provide emergency loans for bad credit to Centrelink customers?

We consider most forms of Centrelink income as regular income. As long as you have received your payments for at least 90 days and meet all of our eligibility criteria, we may be able to provide you with a loan for people on Centrelink.

Other ways to access fast emergency finance

If you are in an emergency situation and require immediate financial assistance, here are some other options you may wish to consider.

Credit cards

Credit cards can be used up to their set limit to cover any costs you need to cover immediately. You can then repay this amount in full or cover the minimum amount. Credit cards typically accompany high interest rates and additional fees, so it is important to do your research.

Advance payment

If you receive Centrelink benefits, you may wish to request an advance payment. You pay back this advance payment out of your future payments. To find out more information about Centrelink advance payments, refer to the Services Australia website.

No Interest Loan (NILS)

If you are in a financially difficult situation and need emergency cash, you may be eligible for NILS assistance. NILS provides low-income individuals and families with affordable credit up to $1,500 for essential items. To find out whether you are eligible for NILS, refer to the NILS website.
