Redress/Privacy Policy

All loans and credit products must be based on a genuine assessment of the borrower’s needs, the suitability of the product to meet those needs, and demonstrated capacity to meet the repayments. If an applicant feels they have been wronged or mistreated, they may follow a redress mechanism that begins by informally complaining to the Executive Director.

We base our lending decisions on a careful and prudent assessment of a borrower’s financial position and capacity to repay a loan. Our responsible approach to lending is based on (but not limited to) two key aspects of assessment to ensure credit is being provided responsibly. These are:

  • assessing the suitability of a credit product for an individual and
  • assessing a person’s capacity to repay the proposed credit debt.

The highest standards of disclosure and procedural fairness will be adhered to. This will include:

  • explaining the interest options that are available;
  • explaining how to repay the debt in full;
  • explaining all fees and charges that apply to the loan;
  • adhering to the Personal Information Protection Act.
