Money3 is a non-bank lender offering car loans and other vehicle finance for up to $50,000 and you can borrow for anything from a motorcycle to a ride-on lawnmower. They also provide personal loans up to $12,000, which can be used for a broad range of purposes (e.g. vehicle repairs, medical expenses etc.).
Money3 claims to “specialise in giving people a fair go”, which means they are a great solution for customers with an impaired credit history and also have options for customers on Centrelink.
This does however come at a price, with fixed interest rates ranging from 19.95% to 28%.
How to apply for a Money3 loan
Money3 has the most relaxed credit policies of any of the ~20 lenders on Driva’s panel and often will assess customers on a case-by-case basis as opposed to having specific strict policies.
That said, at bare minimum Money3 applicants should at least meet the following requirements:
- Full-time employment (or 3 months of casual employment)
- Minimum pre-tax income of $20,000 per annum
- Minimum credit score of 200
Driva tip: We won’t lodge a customer’s application with a particular lender until we know it’s very likely to be approved. This means for most Money3 applicants who are assessed on a case-by-case basis, Driva will anonymously discuss your profile with a Money3 representative before sharing your profile to protect your credit score.
