What to know about Nimble

To apply with Nimble simply follow the secure link on this page to their online application form. The application will take a few minutes and you need to meet the following criteria to be eligible:

  • Be over 18

    I receive age pension of $670 per fortnight. I do some consultancy work from time to time and paid by the hour. It is not consistent and I am seeking some part time work to supplement my pension, in addition my wife runs a small ABN agency and earn an additional $500 – $700 per month on top of her age pension of $670 fortnightly, I assist her in this work. The income pays for our extra’s on living expenses. I am seeking a small loan for some dental work I need. We own our house and car. Can you suggest a lender who may consider my application?

      Hi Michael,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      Currently, to be eligible for a Nimble short-term loan your main source of income must not be Centrelink. Since you mentioned that you have other sources of income, I suggest that you contact them directly if you consider applying with them to know your chances of being approved.

      If you are looking around in getting a small loan for your dental needs, you may check out this page to compare lenders that accept pensioners.

      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!

      As finder is an online comparison service and is not a product issuer, it would be best to get in touch with a lender featured on our pages to discuss your eligibility or options.

      You may compare options on this page on Loans Up To $10,000 Even With Bad Credit.

      Before applying for a loan, please ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria and requirements of the loan option or lender and make sure to read the details, as well as the relevant PDS/ T&Cs of the loan option before making a decision and consider whether the product or option is right for you.

      I hope this helps.

      Hi Carmel,

      Thanks for your question.

      When you apply for a Nimble loan, Nimble sets out your repayments in a contract based on the pay frequency you indicated and agreed upon. Your payments will be direct debited out of your account on the set repayment days.

      If you want a different repayment term, you may directly contact Nimble to inquire if this is possible.

    Hi How much would weekly repayments be on loan of amount of $1000.00

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      ElizabethJanuary 12, 2015Staff

      Hi Anne,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you were to repay the loan over a period of 17 days, your weekly repayments would be $620 for a total repayment amount of $1,240.00. Keep in mind this is only an indication and the repayment terms you’re offered by Nimble might be different, and so would affect the amount you would repay.

      I hope this has helped.

    how many repayments if i borrow 1000?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      ShirleyDecember 29, 2014Staff

      Hi Kaz,

      Thanks for your question.

      Your repayments will depend on how often you’re paid and your first repayment date. For example, if you’re paid on a monthly basis and your first repayment date is Monday 5 Jan, your first repayment amount would be $640 and then your second repayment would be $640 on Thursday 5th Feb.

      Please note that this is just an indication and doesn’t represent a quote.

      Hi RodMcF,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that not a product issuer or a credit provider.

      Nimble will look at your employment status and your ability to repay the loan. To be eligible for a Nimble loan, you need to be working – so if your primary source of income is Centrelink benefits, you won’t be able to borrow from Nimble. If you have anymore questions about your eligibility, please get in touch with Nimble directly.
