What is a Payday Loan?

Payday loans refer to borrowing a few hundred pounds, receiving the money upfront and repaying the full amount on your next payday, usually the last Friday of the month. This can give the borrower an important injection of cash to help pay for any pressing bills and emergencies.
However, the pressure to repay the loan in full on your next payday can add a lot of unwanted financial stress, repeat borrowing and a dangerous spiral of debt.
As payday lenders continue to come under fire by regulators and the media, more and more people are seeking payday loans alternatives and Fund Ourselves is delighted offer a viable alternative to its customers.

How Do Repayments Work for Payday Loans?

Repayments are collected each month on a scheduled repayment date. This is often a date selected by the borrower when they receive their next pay cheque from work e.g. 25th, 30th or last working Friday of the month.
Payments are collected in equal monthly instalments and you will receive a reminder on the days leading up to each repayment.
Funds will be collected automatically using a process called continuous payment authority, which ensures an automatic collection from your bank account. The process is simplified so you do not need to call up or make a manual payment online.

What Happens if I Cannot Repay?

Fund Ourselves is dedicated to helping people to improve their financial position. In the event of non-repayment, we will consider all options available to help you repay the amount outstanding including option to spread the repayment which may be subject to further interest. Please note that failing to make payment on time may impact your credit rating.
