Loan Application Process

Prior to considering a loan you need to ask yourself a number of questions.

  1. How much can you afford?
  2. How long do you want to have the loan for?

When required we’ll give you professional and friendly advice to help you through this process. Once you decide what type of loan and the amount you would like to request, you are ready to apply for your loan.

The application process will include:

  • An update of your details on our system
  • Standard questions regarding the purpose of the loan
  • Details of your household income and outgoings.
  • As part of this process Irish Credit Bureau consent will be requested from you.
  • You will also be required to provide proof of your ability to repay.

Loans are available to all our members, if you are not a member you must first join the credit union.
