Consolidating debt may mean you will repay the debt over a longer period. As a responsible lender, we recommend you close the accounts with existing lenders, to avoid the temptation of building up debt again.
To apply for a Consolidation Loan you must –
- Be a member of FAIRshare Credit Union
- Be 18 years of age or over
- Have a minimum weekly income of £125, from employment or pensions
Your application is more likely to be approved if you –
- Can prove a regular source of income
- Are not currently bankrupt
- Are not in a Debt Relief Order (DRO), Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) or a Debt Management Plan
