Can I apply for a loan if my credit is less-than-perfect?

Yes, you can apply.

A less-than-perfect credit score or credit history does not mean you are prevented from qualifying for a loan. Here at PickALoan, we understand that a credit score is easy to damage but that it may take time to repair, this is why we won’t be refused on past credit mistakes. We use a huge variety of criteria so we can evaluate you and your needs, including credit scores, recent borrowing and circumstances. So even if you have had trouble with applying for credit before, we may be able to approve you for a loan.

Will I have to provide a guarantor?

No, a guarantor isn’t always needed.

Here at PickALoan, we understand that each and every one of our customers is an individual and the criteria that work for one may not for another. So we offer a huge range of loan types so that our customers can find a loan that suits them and their situation. So some loans will require a guarantor but others won’t, were here to help you.

How much can I borrow?

Here at PicALoan, we offer loans from £100 to £25,000. The amount you can borrow will be dependent on each customer’s personal circumstances as well as affordability checks and credit checks

What can I use the loan for?

A personal loan can be used for any personal financial needs, for example, a wedding, a new car, a holiday, home improvements, debt consolidation, or much more.

PickALoan does not currently offer business loans, so the loan cannot be used for business for purposes such as; investments, VAT or tax bills or for any business illegal fees.
