What can you get with a $5k Loan?

You can pay quite a lot of things with a $5,000 loan. At Jacaranda Finance, our Personal Loans are designed to be used for life’s key expenses - planned or otherwise. You can borrow as little as $3,000 all the way up to $25,000 for the following common loan purposes:

Secure your loan to borrow more

We offer two different loan types at Jacaranda: Secured Loans and Unsecured Loans. Our secured loans involve attaching something of value to your loan as security, often a car or vehicle. Unsecured loans, on the other hand, don't require any kind of security in the loan contract.

If you’re borrowing $5k, you can use both a Secured or Unsecured Loan. The choice is yours!

However, the maximum loan limit on our Unsecured Loans is $15,000. As Unsecured Loans tend to carry a higher level of risk, you must attach security to your loan if you want to access up to $25,000.

Secured vs unsecured
Which is better to borrow $5k?

Credit cards vs personal loans

When borrowing larger sums like $5,000 or more, you can use a number of different products, such as a credit card.

Whether or not a credit card or personal loan is the right option for you depends on a few factors. 

We’ve compared the pros and cons of both in our guide below.

Before you formally apply with Jacaranda, you can check if you qualify for a loan in a way that does not impact your credit score. We do this by performing a 'soft' credit check that is only visible to you.

We will perform a credit assessment during this process, which involves checking your credit report. By submitting a full application, you authorise Jacaranda Finance to obtain a copy of your full credit file, referred to as a 'hard' credit check.

Other lenders will be able to see that you applied for a loan with Jacaranda.

This might impact your credit score.
