A personal loan from Harmoney is an unsecured loan that can be used for any legal purpose. Borrowers can apply for loans of between $5,000 and $70,000.

Once your loan application has been reviewed by Harmoney, your credit profile is verified to determine your creditworthiness. Following this check, your profile will be listed on the live lending marketplace where most loans are funded within 24 hours of being posted. From the application to having your loan funded, the whole process takes place online.

Interest rates vary according to your profile. Borrowers can choose loan periods of 3 or 5 years

What features come with Harmoney's P2P loan?

Here are some of the features of Harmoney’s P2P loans:

  • Unsecured loans. These loans are unsecured, which means you don’t have to declare valuable assets as collateral and risk losing them.
  • Tailored interest rates. Interest rates are tailored according to your profile. Rates vary between 6.99% p.a. to 28.21% p.a.
  • Flexibility. Loans can be used for any legal purpose.
  • Repayments. You repay your loan every month by direct debit and have your choice of loan terms – terms of 3 or 5 years are available.
  • Minimum amounts. Borrowers can apply for up to $70,000, while investors can open a Harmoney account with a minimum of $2 million.
  • No early repayment fees. You can repay the whole loan amount before the end of the loan period without risking a penalty fee.

How much will the loan cost?

Borrowers pay a one-off $500 platform fee that’s added to the requested loan amount. As long as you make the required payments, there are no additional fees charged. If a payment is dishonoured you’ll be charged a fee of $15.

    I would like to borrow unsecured personal loan amount for $20,000 with no other debt but based on a Pensioner Single Person Income solely

      RenchFebruary 11, 2018Staff

      Hi Anne,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      I’m afraid that Harmoney does not accept applicants who are on a pension as an income. There are other lenders which do accept, you may refer to this page.

      You may click the name of your preferred lender to know more details and you may click the green “Go to site” button to submit an online application through their official site.

      Best regards,
      Rench
