      Hi Jacqueline,

      Thanks for your question and I’m sorry to hear about the rejection of your application.

      Generally, lenders would require you to provide proof of your income source to assess your financial position and your ability to repay the loan. Usually, for applicants who are paid in cash, banks or lenders would consider them as having an unstable employment.

      For a chance to be accepted, you may have to provide an evidence of all your income plus endorsements from your employer. Depending on the state you live in and the tax regulations, you may or may not be required to pay tax. So having that income record in your tax, it will also mean that you can have the documentation to show to the lender. Please refer to this guide for credit when paid in cash, which might be useful.

      Also, before submitting any application for a credit, make sure to review the eligibility criteria and requirements so that you would know if you qualify for the loan or not.

      Hi Britt-Inger,

      Unfortunately Nimble only provides loans to current residents of Australia. You’ll need to contact a lender in Sweden if you’re in need of a loan.

      Sorry I couldn’t be of more assistance,
