How do I choose a personal loan?

The great advantage of our services is the fact that you can access it anywhere as long as you are connected to a computer that has an internet connection.

Make use of our services with absolutely no charges to you

Nobody wants to wait after they have applied for instant cash loans. There will be no reason we have to put you on the waiting list because our lenders will attend to your quotation in no time.

After a quotation has been made and given to you, you will then have the pleasure of choosing one that you can afford to pay without incurring interests that are too much. Knowing that you normally need to use the loan right away, the money will be made available in your account within one-two business days.

How much can you qualify for a loan?

Depending on how much money the client qualifies for based on his credit profile, the minimum amount you can get is R 2000 and the maximum amount is R 150 000. Our Hippo personal loans are a credit plan that is handled by the actual client which means you have to make a decision about how you going to pay.

Furthermore, the time taken to finish paying the loan will differ from 1 year to a maximum of 6 years. The longer you take, the more money you will pay but with slightly less interest. On the other hand, if you finish your loan quicker, you will be paying a huge amount of interest for a shorter time frame.

We are known to help customers who are undergoing a difficult financial time.

Our quick loans have helped a number of clients and we will continue filling the gap.
