Our review of Peachy Loans
Peachy Loans offer their loans at a representative APR of 947% which is mid-table on Choose Wisely. Something that does set them apart is that the lowest loan term is 15 days which is rare as most other lenders have a minimum payment term of at least one month. Also instead of having set monthly repayment dates, Peachy Loans allow their customers to log into their online account area and pay off the loan bit by bit if and when they have extra funds. There is no charge to do this and by doing so it will reduce the amount of overall interest you’ll pay - worth doing if you can afford it.
Across the website there is a strong sense that Peachy Loans want to position themselves as a responsible lender, they have a page on the steps they take to protect their customers and there is a number of educational articles on their blog that discuss financial issues such as saving tips, increasing income streams and how to get the best deals on things such as holidays. They also pay close attention to the creditworthiness of their customers and state that only 2% to 5% of Peachy Loan applicants are actually granted the loan. This is refreshing to see and it does come across that they actually mean it, rather than using responsible lending as a marketing tool.
As with any high-cost short-term product the usual warning applies. If you have any doubt whether you can afford to repay your loan on time and in full, then don’t apply. By missing or being late with repayments, you will not only harm your credit file but could be subject to a number of fees, which can soon make things very expensive.
Overall verdict: A refreshingly responsible and transparent lender in the market. Their rates aren’t the cheapest, but with their proven customer service and repayment flexibility they could be a lender worth exploring if you are looking for a high-cost short-term loan.
