Our review of Progressive Money

Progressive Money is a Manchester-based lender, part of Darwin Loan Solutions, which is one of the fastest growing finance companies in the UK. The company specialises in providing longer-term loans to people with a poor credit rating. They have served over 25,000 customers and lent more than £100 million since 2010. Progressive Money also operates as a broker, which means that, if they are unable to lend to you, they may be able to find you an alternative solution from another provider.

Progressive Money provide loans for between £1000 and £15000 over 18 months to 10 years. While your credit history will certainly affect how likely it is that you’ll get approved for a loan with them, they also take into account your personal circumstances. However, Progressive will only take applications from homeowners who have an income that they can prove. There is also an arrangement fee to pay if your application is successful, and an extra acceptance fee for 10% of the value of the loan. Borrowing with bad credit can be expensive and it’s worth considering whether a loan is the best option for you.

There are a variety of different types of loan available from Progressive Money, from debt consolidation to home improvement, but these are all very similar products. As a relatively small lender, with very few reviews, it’s hard to judge whether Progressive Money has been providing good customer service. However, the company has listed some feedback from customers on their website, which is over 80% positive. If you are considering taking out a loan from Progressive Money, it’s worth checking whether you will be able to make the repayments. A personal loan is a big, long-term commitment and you could save money by shopping around and comparing your options.

My Verdict: Progressive Money is an interesting option if you have a poor credit history and want a lender to look at your current circumstances. They are an established lender, backed by a major financial company and able to offer support by phone, six days per week. Remember that a personal loan is an expensive way to borrow if you have a poor credit history - compare your options and be sure you can afford the repayments before applying.
