FAIRshare Saver Loan

Build up savings with a FAIRshare Saver Loan

A FAIRshare Saver Loan allows members to borrow £500 up to £7500 over a maximum of 60 months. With a Saver Loan, you build up savings whilst repaying your loan, and it can also help improve your credit rating. Smaller loan amounts will be considered.

When you borrow from us, part of each regular deposit is allocated to savings after loan repayments has been deducted.  We call this ‘Save As You Borrow‘ and its one of the great benefits of borrowing from FAIRshare.

To apply for a Saver Loan you must –

  • Become a FAIRshare member and open a savings account if approved for a loan.
  • Be 18 years of age or over.
  • Have a minimum weekly income of £125, from employment, pensions or benefits*
  • Not be currently bankrupt.
  • Not be in a Debt Relief Order (DRO), Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) or a Debt Management Plan.
Your application is more likely to be approved if you –
  • Can prove a regular source of income with Open Banking
  • Are not currently bankrupt
  • Are not in a Debt Relief Order (DRO), Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) or a Debt Management Plan

*Usually refers to Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance (JSA), Employment Support Allowance (ESA) & Universal Credit (UC).
