Prior to considering a loan you need to ask yourself a number of questions.

  1. How much can you afford?
  2. How long do you want to have the loan for?

When required we’ll give you professional and friendly advice to help you through this process. Once you decide what type of loan and the amount you would like to request, you are ready to apply for your loan.

During the application process we will:

  • Update your details on our system to ensure data accuracy
  • Ask questions regarding the purpose of the loan
  • Require details of your household income and outgoings.
  • Consult the Irish Credit Bureau and Central Credit Register
  • Request proof of your ability to repay.

Loans are available to adult members only, if you are not a member you must first join the credit union.
