About Bamboo Loans
Southampton-based Bamboo Loans offers online personal unsecured loans. They lend amounts between £1,000 and £8,000 at an advertised Representative 69.9% APR. It is worth noting that if approved, the actual rate you’ll be offered will be determined by your personal circumstances and credit profile.
A Bamboo loan can be used for a variety of things, ranging from home improvements, dealing with an emergency or even consolidating multiple debts into one monthly payment. In order to apply for a loan with Bamboo you must be a UK resident (not from the Channel Islands or Isle of man), at least 18 years old, have a valid UK debit card, not be bankrupt and of course, be able to afford the monthly payments. If you tick those boxes Bamboo, will consider every case individually and will look at your unique circumstances before making a decision. This means if you are yet to build up a good credit history, Bamboo will still consider you for a loan.
