It can be expensive to borrow small amounts of money and borrowing may not solve your money problems.

Check your options before you borrow:

How did enably short-term loans work?

enably offered loans of between $2,001 and $20,000 to be repaid over a maximum period of 3 years. The amount for which you are approved is based on your credit score and financial situation.

The application could be completed online and approved within an hour (during business hours). Loans had to be repaid by direct debit over a minimum term of 61 days in weekly, fortnightly or monthly installments.

Features of a loan from enably

  • Turnaround. You can have your loan application approved within an hour of submitting it. The application itself takes a few minutes to complete online.
  • Various loan amounts available. You can apply for a loan of between $2,001 and $20,000, depending on what you need.
  • Loan terms. You're able to choose your own repayment schedule, with longer terms available for larger loan amounts.
  • Repayment. Repay the loan weekly, monthly or fortnightly. The fees attached are based on the loan amount and the loan period. If you need to change your repayment date, a fee of $10 applies.
  • Fees on reducing balance. You only pay fees on the outstanding principal. The more you pay off, the less you’ll be charged in fees.
  • Repeat borrowing. As long as you repay your first loan in full, you can apply for another loan online at any time.

How much does the loan cost?

An establishment fee was charged as a percentage of the principal, which ranged from 0-20% depending on the loan amount and the loan term. The fees were charged on a reducing balance, meaning the fees decreased as the loan was repaid and reduced the principal amount. Monthly fees were 2.8 - 4% of the loan amount.

Other fees include:

  • $1.10 for each direct debit payment
  • $20 fee for dishonoured or failed payments
  • $10 for rescheduling a payment

Are you eligible for an enably Short Term Loan?

To apply for one of these loans, applicants had to meet the following requirements:

  • Be employed
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Earn over $1,500 per month

If your loan wasn't approved but the applicant's circumstances had changed, they could submit another application 14 days after the loan application was declined.

How you can apply

Enably loans were available to apply for online and applicants were required to confirm the purpose of the loan, the amount and to provide some personal and employment details.

Enably would access the applicant's recent banking data through Yodlee, a third-party platform that provides read-only access to the account. If they were a new customer, enably would perform a credit check.

      Hi Jodie,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      Secured loans can be easier to be approved for than car loans as they are less of a risk to a lender. You can consider a bad credit car loan and attach your newly purchased vehicle to the loan as security.

      Please send me a message if you need anything else.

      Cheers,
      Joel
