Standard Loans

North East Warrington Credit Union’s standard loans are savings based.  You need to be a member and saving on a regular basis. Regular savings payments need to be made for a minimum of 10 out of 13 weeks.  You can then borrow up to £200 or the amount in your savings plus £125, whichever is the larger.  Once this has successfully been repaid you can borrow up to 3 times your savings up to a maximum of £7,500 with NEWCU Board approval.

  • Low interest rate on a reducing basis: 19.25% APR up to £2999, 16.04% APR for £3000 and over
  • Convenient weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments
  • Borrow up to £7,500
  • No credit checks
  • Loan is not taken from your savings so your savings continue to receive interest

Standard loans last for a minimum of 6 months but can be spread over a maximum of 3 years.
