In short, a small loan (also called a short term loan or cash loan) is a small personal loan that aims to help you get by in the short term to cover a small expense. These small loans range in size from as little as $300 to $2,000. They can also range in length of repayment period depending on the lender.
Many people are surprised that borrowing $500 is an option, however, many Australian’s just need a little financial help from time to time. Despite your best intentions to save and be responsible with your money, a financial emergency can hit you out of nowhere, throwing your whole budget out of whack. At Jacaranda, we understand this better than most. That’s why our aim, regardless of the outcome of your loan application, is to help you move forward in life.
A small loan is a cash advance between $300 and $2,000. They are usually repaid within a period of up to 12 months (depending on the lender), and the application process takes just a few minutes. Small loans can be used to pay for unexpected expenses that require fast access to small amounts of cash. Some examples of what you could use our loans for include:
Sometimes, bills come in that are higher than expected. Or perhaps it’s that time of year when you have to pay your car rego. Whatever the situation it is, you’ll often find that it’s something that needs to be paid ASAP! It can be incredibly stressful to have to pay for emergency expenses. However, that’s where we come in. We offer small loans to cover those unexpected costs so that you can go back to focusing on the more important things in life.
They are short-term personal loans that you can apply for to cover any personal expense that you may need help with, in the lead up to your payday. Typically, these little loans are unsecured and can range from $300 up to $2,000 with a repayment period of 12-months. Our small loans range from $300 to $2,000 and are repaid over a 12-month period.

With Jacaranda, our repayments work by setting up a direct debit, so that your repayments will come out of your account automatically.

There are a variety of reasons people need to apply for small personal loans. Here are some of the common reasons:
We always conduct a credit check when assessing your application for a personal loan. Don’t let this deter you from applying, however, as it’s not the only thing we look at. Unlike traditional lenders like banks or credit unions, we won’t reject your application solely on the basis of a credit check.
Having bad credit is often a result of situations that may have happened in the past. We view your credit history as exactly that – history. We don’t think a mistake you made up to 7 years ago should necessarily affect your ability to get approved for finance today. In addition to a credit check we will also look at your bank statements. This allows us to view your income, spending habits, and your overall relationship with money. This generally gives us a better indication than a credit check, of whether a personal loan is suitable and affordable for you.
Your credit score is a numerical representation of the information in your credit report. Your score generally lies on a scale between 0 and 1200 (depending on the credit agency) and describes your history with credit.
The higher the value the better your credit rating is. If your credit rating is anywhere below 620, it is considered bad. Therefore, the credit rating reflects the information contained in your credit report, which includes the following details:
If you’ve got a small business that is a sole prop, you could look for loans to cover your business expenses. For instance, if you need to pay for new machinery or office supplies, our small cash loans can cover these costs. The only thing you need to keep in mind is you will need to apply for a personal loan as we cannot provide loans to business entities. Here are other examples of what our small business loans can be used for:
Yes, we can provide loans to people who receive Centrelink benefits! You need to be receiving Centrelink income payments and provide us with your Centrelink MyGov statement. However, it’s important to note that we can’t guarantee approval for Centrelink recipients.

If your loan application is rejected there may be several reasons as to why. Below we’ve listed some of the reasons your small loan application may not have been accepted:
