How can I get a personal loan with poor credit?

Simply apply for a Swoosh bad credit loan online. Swoosh is a responsible lender, which means that we will only loan an amount that you can comfortably repay now. And we make sure you have all of the repayments information in advance—so there are no hidden surprises.


What is the lowest credit score for a loan?

When it comes to obtaining a loan, the minimum credit score required can vary depending on the lender and the type of loan you’re seeking. While a credit score above 550 is generally considered a safe starting point for qualifying for a personal loan, it’s important to note that different lenders may have higher or lower requirements. Some lenders might accept lower credit scores or consider other factors, while others may demand a higher score for approval.


Why is my credit rating so low?

Several factors can contribute to a low credit rating. One common reason is late or missed payments on your credit accounts. It’s important to note that credit report inaccuracies and identity theft can play a significant role in lowering your credit scores as well. By regularly monitoring your credit report and addressing any errors or fraudulent activity promptly, you can help improve your credit rating over time.


Can I get a bad credit loan to consolidate debt?

Yes, you can! At Swoosh, we understand that it can be hard to stay on top of debt when you’re trying to manage multiple loans. And that it can be tricky to find someone who will look beyond your bad credit history. That’s why we offer debt consolidation loans – guaranteed for eligible Aussies, even with bad credit.


How much does a declined loan affect credit score?

The short answer is that a loan rejection doesn’t hurt your credit score. However, if you continue to apply for loans and continue to be rejected in a short space of time, this builds up numerous “hard enquiries” regarding your credit, which can lower your score.


How to get a loan when no one will approve you?

Check out our blog for suggestions for what to do when you need a loan but keep getting declined.


Who will give me a loan when no one else will in Australia?

Swoosh has helped thousands of Australians with bad credit to get cash fast and improve their credit rating at the same time.


How do I borrow money ASAP?

Complete an online loan application with Swoosh – as long as you provide the information we need and you meet our eligibility criteria, you could get the funds in your account the same day.


How is your credit rating determined?

In Australia, values assigned to credit scores, ranging from 0 to 1200, determine your credit rating. When it comes to credit ratings, the lower the number, the worse the credit. And the worse the credit, the harder it is to apply for a loan with other credit providers.
Each credit bureau calculates credit scores differently, but the following factors tend to play a large role in determining a credit score:

  • Comprehensive Credit Reporting information – including repayment history and credit limits
  • Credit applications
  • Adverse events – like missed payments and defaults
  • Personal information
  • Credit report age

What is a no score loan?

No score loans are made for people who have little-to-no credit history.
