Cover unexpected short-term expenses

Many people come to a point where they cannot get through the month without getting access to some extra money. Hollard Money offers short-term loans with a value of up to R8000 to help cover these costs. They also specialize in insurance products such as life, funeral, home, travel, and car insurance. 

Hollard Services

A short-term loan allows clients access to a small number of extra funds to help them get through the month.

Their repayment terms are shorter than long-term loans, making them perfect for those who don't want to make a lengthy commitment with a creditor. With a Hollard short-term loan, clients can consolidate their debt, pay medical bills or legal, cover car repair costs, renovate a home and even pay for study or school fees.

For those unable to stand in line at a traditional financial institution such as a bank, Hollard created a unique online platform where clients can safely apply for their loans. This is perfect for someone with a busy schedule who can't take time off work. Apply for a short-term loan online on the Hollard website by providing the basic needed personal information and uploading the necessary documents.

Holland - fast and affordable short-term loans

Hollard created an online loan calculation tool to help clients understand what the company can offer.

The loan calculator displays the total interest charged, the total loan amount with interest, and monthly instalments. Hollard believes in responsible lending and will not provide loans to clients that are too large for them to repay. They would like to help each client create a better credit record with the help of their services.

Documentation needed to apply

When clients apply for a loan, they need to submit some documentation to complete the process. Ensure a valid South African ID Document, three months' bank statements and proof of address are ready when applying online or at the branch. The online portal has an easy-to-use system where clients can upload the necessary documents.

All clients have to undergo a credit check

Hollard only provides loans to clients who can prove that they can afford to pay back the loan amount. All clients will go a credit check whether they apply for a loan online or in person. To ensure that the loan gets secured, applicants must provide accurate information and have the required documents ready. A good credit rating may positively impact the client's personalized interest rate.

Flexible repayment terms

The company is well-known for providing flexible terms on its short-term loans. Clients can choose to pay their instalment over 1 to 6 months, every month. Hollard wants their lenders to have time to budget their repayments instead of getting into more debt to repay their loans.

Get access to funds within 24 hours

After clients complete the online application and upload their documents, Hollard will send through an agreement with all the relevant fees attached. Once both parties agree and sign, an approval notification will be sent within minutes. Clients can expect their money to be available within 24 hours of applying. Hollard is well-known for its quick turnaround time and hassle-free service.

Hollard will not ask for upfront payments

Nowadays there are many fraudsters out there, which is why clients should not accept any loan from anyone that demands upfront payment. Hollard only collects money after the loan has been approved.
