No Interest Loans (NILs) are a smart choice loan option to help you manage your money.

Borrow up to $2000 for essentials such as appliances or furniture, to help you get your car back on the road, pay for education fees and equipment or help you cover the cost of goods and services to support your wellbeing with no fees, no interest, ever. 

Borrow up to $3000 for housing related expenses such as bond or rent in advance, or for recovery from a natural disaster with no fees, no interest, ever.

You pay back only what you borrow and nothing more.   

How does NILs work?   

There are times in life, despite how hard you try to keep on top of things, when unexpected expenses pop up.  Washing machine has broken down?  Unexpected car repairs?  NILs will pay the cost of these essential goods and services straight to the vendor.  Loans can not be used for cash, bills or debts.

NILs works through a process called ‘circular community credit’. This means when a borrower makes a repayment to NILs, the funds are then available to someone else in the community. It is worth considering a NILs loan first before seeking other expensive options for credit.
