Good People Bad Credit makes finding personal loans for bad credit a breeze!
Personal loans for bad credit are great for people who need some extra funds but don’t quite have a perfect credit score. Personal loans for bad credit up to $15,000 include an establishment fee and regular repayments, repaid over a period of up to 24 months.
When life doesn’t seem to want to give you a break, you might find yourself in a bit of financial strife. If you’ve been in a similar position in the past, defaulting on a payment might have resulted in a black mark on your credit history, giving you a bad credit score. This then makes it harder to access loans through traditional lenders and leaves you wondering where to find personal loans for people with bad credit.
That’s where Good People Bad Credit can help. Unlike the big banks, we want to help those who don’t have a spotless financial record. We can guide you through the stressful process of searching for a loan by finding personal loans for bad credit lenders. Want to know more about this awesome service? We thought you might.
What are personal loans for bad credit?
To put it simply, personal loans for bad credit are finance options designed to help good people with an imperfect credit history.
When money’s tight, a personal loan can help you get back on your feet. However, if your credit score isn’t looking so stellar, you’ll find that the traditional methods of obtaining a loan simply aren’t an option. Unfortunately, the big banks can view anyone who doesn’t have a spotless credit record as a huge financial risk. Just because you have bad credit, doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to pay back a loan. A black mark on your credit history can stay there for up to 7 years, so the bank might be judging you for a mistake from your distant past.
Luckily, banks are no longer the only lenders on the scene. Jump online and you’ll find a multitude of lenders who are willing to help out those with bad credit. If you ask the big banks, they’ll spout off some nonsense about how all online lenders are untrustworthy and that you should only get a loan from a bank or a similar “traditional” lender.
The truth is, there are plenty of legitimate, trustworthy lenders that can find affordable personal loans for bad credit. It’s not surprising that the banks would try to discredit these responsible loan providers. They see these new kids on the block as a threat. The banks want to protect their reputation as a supposedly reliable institution that people trust for financial advice. However, if you’ve been paying attention to the Banking Royal Commission, you’d be aware that the banks and their practices are far from honourable.
It’s always helpful to have someone on your side to guide you through the process of finding an affordable lender. That’s where we come in!

What are the costs of personal loans for bad credit?
Good People Bad Credit is a lender-finder, not the actual lender. As such, we cannot guarantee what your costs and repayments are going to be. Every lender is different and will have different loan terms. We can give you an example of what the costs may look like, but remember that this is an example only.
A small amount unsecured loan, $1000 up to $2,000:
For a small amount credit contract of $1000 – $2,000 you can expect something like this:
- A 20% establishment fee
- A 4% monthly fee that will be applied on the anniversary date of your loan every month.
- Direct debit dishonour fee if you miss a repayment.
A medium amount secured loan, $2,001 – $4,600:
The costs of a medium amount secured loan are a little different. You can expect something like the following:
- An establishment fee of $400
- An interest rate of 48%* per annum. Keep in mind that the more you pay off your loan, the less interest you will be charged. This is called reducing interest.
- A direct debit dishonour fee if you miss a repayment
*Comparison rate of 67.41% per annum. This comparison rate is based on a medium amount secured loan and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts may result in a different comparison rate.
A large amount secured loan, $5,000 – 15,000:
The costs of a large amount credit contract are again a little different. You can expect something like the following:
- An interest rate of 21.24%* per annum. Keep in mind that the more you pay off your loan, the less interest you will be charged. This is called reducing interest.
*The maximum comparison rate for interest is 48% per annum. This comparison rate is based on a large amount secured loan and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts may result in a different comparison rate
Also, just remember, that if you’re interested in applying for one of the larger loans of $2,001 – $15,000, they are secured loans so, you will need to provide a vehicle such as a car, truck, caravan or motorbike that can be used as security.
As always, make sure to thoroughly read your loan contract before you sign it. This will allow you to be well informed of all the details relating to your loan. And remember, you are well within your rights to back out any time prior to signing the contract for no extra charge.
