Home > Loan Application Has Never Been Simpler. With Jacaranda, Apply For A Loan Within Minutes.
If something unexpected happens and you need to access credit, the last thing you need is an overly-complicated loan application process. Luckily, Jacaranda’s loan application process has been designed to be as streamlined as possible. You could even be approved within 60-minutes of applying.
When completing a loan application, you need to make the lenders understand that you will be able to afford all the repayments required from you. Additionally, your credit score may be examined. These days, most lenders offer an online application.
Jacaranda, for example, is 100% online. Our loan application process has been designed to be as easy and straightforward as possible, so you can get back to the important stuff.

While filling out your personal loan application, you may be asked to supply certain pieces of information. We want to make this process as quick as possible for you. So, if you want to really breeze through your application, just make sure you have these handy when you apply:
Of course! At Jacaranda, we are 100% online. So, really you can only apply online. If the thought of computers or anything digital sends a shiver down your spine, don’t stress. We’ve designed our online loan application to be so simple, even your grandparents could do it.

Jacaranda will assess your loan application based on affordability and suitability. In other words, will you be able to easily afford the repayments, and is this loan right for you? So, to maximise your chances of being approved for a loan, make sure you can say ‘yes’ to as many of these as possible:
Your credit score is a reflection of your financial history. Equifax is Australia’s largest credit reporting bureau. Equifax gives you a credit score between 0 and 1,200. A ‘good’ credit score is usually between 622 and 725. Anything above this is considered a ‘very good’ or ‘excellent’ credit score.
Keep in mind, however, that Jacaranda does not assess your loan application based solely on your credit score. Jacaranda accesses a read-only copy of your bank statements during the application. From here, they are able to get a better picture of your relationship with money. If they can see you’ve been on track with your other repayments, and your income will cover your Jacaranda repayments, you may still be considered for a personal loan.
A personal loan may actually positively affect your mortgage application. If you consistently make your loan repayments on time, it may boost your credit score, as this is proof you’re a responsible borrower.
On the other hand, if you are consistently missing repayments, your credit score may be negatively affected. This may have an adverse effect on your mortgage application.
During your loan application, you may be asked to provide certain pieces of information. So, if you really want to breeze through your application, it may be a good idea to keep the following handy:
Having everything on this loan application checklist will allow you to get your application submitted in lightning speed.
Most Jacaranda loan applications will follow the same pattern. To give you an idea here’s what you could expect the process to look like:
Enter in your desired loan amount and repayment terms in the loan calculator (located at the top of this page). You’ll be able to see what the weekly, fortnightly and monthly payments may look like on your loan. If you like what you see, click ‘Apply Now’.
You’ll then be redirected to our application form. If you have all your necessary details handy, this form should only take a few minutes to complete. Once you have submitted this form, our assessment team will look over your application. You should have a response within 60-minutes of applying.*
If your application is successful, we’ll send over a loan agreement. Once you’ve carefully read through and approved the agreement, we’ll get to work transferring you your loan. Depending on your inter-bank transfer times, you could potentially expect to see the loan appear in your account within 24-hours.
To apply for a loan, you need your relevant information and the reason for your loan.

Jacaranda offers loans to cater to budgets of all shapes and sizes. When you’re filling out our loan application, you’ll need to nominate the amount you’re looking to borrow. Here’s an idea of what you could expect.
Our small personal loans range from $300 to $2,000 and can be repaid over a period of 12-months. These are unsecured loans, which means you will not need to attach an asset as security against the loan.
Jacaranda can also offer a medium personal loan. These loans range between $2,001 and $4,600. These medium have a repayment period of 13 to 24-months. These loans require an asset to be attached as security against the value of the loan. Jacaranda can accept your car, motorbike, caravan or boat as security.
If you’re looking for something bigger, we can offer you a large personal loan. These range from $5,000 to $10,000. These loans have a repayment period of 13 to 24-months. Just like a medium personal loan, a large personal loan will require an asset to be attached as security.
Lenders will often ask for an asset to be attached as collateral on larger loans. This is because attaching collateral greatly reduces the risk for the lender. So, attaching an asset as security to your loan may considerably increase your chance of being approved for a bigger amount.
If a borrower consistently and repeatedly misses repayments and fails to get in contact with Jacaranda, their vehicle may be repossessed. A repossession will only be an option after all other avenues have been exhausted.
If your circumstances have changed and you feel like you may be unable to repay your loan, you should get in contact with Jacaranda. We are happy to liaise with you and come to an alternate agreement.
There may be additional fees and charges payable on your loan. These may come in the form of dishonour or default fees. All of these fees and charges, however, will be outlined in your loan agreement.
It is very important that you read through your loan agreement, prior to signing anything. If you have read through your contract, and are still unsure about anything you have read, please get in contact.
You are able to send an email through to our team, via the form on the contact us page. Our customer support team will send you a reply as soon as possible. Alternatively, you are able to call us on 1300 189 823.
