What credit score do I need to get approved for a personal loan?
Each company will have different credit score requirements in Australia. Thankfully, because Swoosh offers bad credit loans, we are only interested in your current financial situation. So even if you have a low credit rating, you can still be eligible for a personal loan with us!
Why do you need to check credit score?
Credit scores can help certain loan companies assess your eligibility for a loan quickly. They indicate how well you have managed debt in the past.
Credit scores are not the only factor lenders look at though, and some lenders do not include credit scores in the calculations at all. Instead, they might look at the actual information listed on your credit report to assess creditworthiness.
