    Hi,

    I’m an Australian citizen but I work for a UK company and I’m paid in GBP – would that affect my eligibility?

    Thanks!

      Hi Melissa,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      Whenever you apply for a loan, lenders check your credit history and asses your capability to repay the loan. They basically ask for financial information which also includes details of the applicant’s employer. Upon checking on Harmoney’s P2P loan application requirements, it did not state that you must be earning in AUD only. For further assistance/info, you may contact Harmoney directly or visit their official page.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi Matt,

      Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

      I’m sorry to hear about your situation, Matt. Our page mentioned the preliminary requirements for this loan. However, there are still other factors that Harmony would take into consideration before they will approve your loan. That’s why you also need to provide personal details, information regarding the loan you’re after as well as your financial situation.

      If you don’t satisfy their criteria, they will reject your loan.

      What you can do is explore other peer-to-peer personal loans. Please review the criteria, details of the loan product, and its conditions, then contact the lender directly to discuss your loan options and eligibility.

      You also mentioned that you have money and assets. You might use that instead of borrowing money.

      I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Joshua

    Hi,

    I currently have a personal loan with a major bank but I want to pay it out sooner and at a lower interest rate to reduce my interest repayments. I have never missed a repayment on any loan that I’ve had. I have always paid out other bank loans (for example, car loan) at least 6 months in advance. I believe my credit rating is quite good.

    If I was to apply to Harmoney or any other company, how can I be certain that their interest rate will be less than my current rate?

Harmoney’s interest rates are offered based on the individual borrower’s credit assessment according to Harmoney’s credit scorecard. As we do not represent the companies featured on our pages, for you to check on the interest rate, you may need to directly contact Harmoney. Also, should you wish to get an estimate amount of your repayments, you may click on the go to site button and use their quick estimate calculator.

      Hi David,

      Thanks for your question.

      Harmoney Peer-to-Peer Loan offers loan consolidation which you can use to combine multiple loans into a single one. However, upon checking their website, I cannot find any option for refinancing.

      Alternatively, if you want to refinance your existing loan to get a better rate, you may compare your other options on this page.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Anndy
