We work a little differently to traditional lenders like banks and credit unions. Our commitment to responsible lending, our streamlined application process and our approach to bad credit sets us apart from our competitors. So, if you need a personal loan, we recommend looking into the costs and fees associated with the personal loan you want. With Jacaranda, nothing is hidden and we will always do our best to get you the finance you need when you need it.
To find out exactly what you will need to pay for your personal loan, you need to determine these few factors:
Whether you’re looking for a small financial pick-me-up to solve your cash flow problems, or something more, we offer a range of personal loans to suit your needs. From small to large, each of our loan types has its own unique requirements and specifications. The table outlines everything you need to know:
|Loan type||Amount||Loan term|
|Small unsecured loans||$300 to $2,000||12 months|
|Medium secured loans||$2,100 to $4,600||13 to 24 months|
|Large secured loans||$5,000 to $10,000||13 to 24 months|
Jacaranda offers different types of repayment options. These are in weekly, fortnightly and monthly instalments. However, we will most likely align your repayments with your payday.
Another important thing to keep in mind is generally, the longer the repayment term, the more interest you will pay. Interest rate is a percentage above the original sum borrowed.
If you are looking to borrow more than $2,000, you will most likely need to provide collateral to secure your loan. This needs to be an item that’s higher or equal in value to your loan amount. For instance, you could provide your car, motorbike, boat etc. So, if you are looking to borrow a medium or large personal loan, keep this in mind.
Why might you need to provide collateral to secure your loan? When borrowing a larger amount of money, it’s a greater risk to your lender. In the case you are unable to repay your loan, your lender has the option to repossess your asset to cover the funds that you weren’t able to repay. Jacaranda Finance will only consider repossession as an absolute last resort. If you’re having trouble committing to your regular instalments, we can reduce your weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments.
This is why it’s important to calculate your repayments using a personal loan calculator. This can give you a good idea of whether or not you can afford the regular repayments on a loan.
A personal loan calculator can help you calculate your weekly, fortnightly or monthly repayments. However, The overall cost of your loan depends on a number of different factors like interest rates and fees. Visit our costs page for a brief explanation of our costs.
the interest rate you receive on your personal loan varies depending on a number of factors. If you have a good credit score you will most likely have access to lower interest rates. This is largely due to the fact you’re considered less risky to the lender. Interest rates are also largely based on the amount you apply for. Small, medium and large personal loans all have different terms and rates of interest.
Jacaranda’s personal loans also have fees and charges for late or missed payments. If you miss a payment, you will be charged a default fee for late payment. So, If you are unable to make a payment on a scheduled date, you need to let us know as soon as possible. Our customer service department will chat to you to figure out an alternative arrangement that works for both parties.
Additionally, you will not be charged a fee if you choose to repay your loan earlier than the stated term. Why do we do this? Well, we don’t believe you should be punished for getting on top of your finances. So if you want to lay down a lump sum to get your loan balance paid off quicker, by all means, don’t let us stop you!
