PKCU will only offer you a loan if we believe that you will be able to afford the repayments. 

To access our loans you must be a member of the Credit Union and, in most cases, have been saving with us for at least 3 months. However we also offer a Freedom Loan which you can apply for as soon as you join the Credit Union.

As far as possible we will aim to set your loan repayments to fit in with the frequency of your income. Once you have successfully repaid half of your loan, you may be eligible for a top-up loan.

Freedom Loans

Interest will be a flat rate of 3% per month on a decreasing loan balance (42.6% APR representative).


How much can you borrow?

You can initially borrow up to £300 which must be repaid within 26 weeks. Once you have successfully repaid half of your loan, you may be eligible for a top-up loan up to a maximum of £600 (net of any Savings you hold with the Credit Union)
