About SoundPound Loans
A SoundPound loan offers affordable lending of between £200 and £1000, repayable between 4 and 12 months,
with a representative APR of 42.6%.
The SoundPound loan is for people who are new to Greater Manchester Credit Unions and are looking for a small loan.
You can apply to borrow £200 – £1000 and have the money paid into your account, sometimes on the same day. The annual interest on a SoundPound Loan is 3.0% per month (APR 42.6%) on the reducing balance. This means that if you borrowed £500 to repay over 12 months, you would pay £50.23 per month, with a total repayment including interest of £602.76.
Your local Credit Union will assess your finances and perform a credit check as part of your loan application.
Credit Unions understand real people and their finances. If you have a poor credit score or low disposable income, we won’t just turn you away. We’ll work with you to build your credit score as well as your savings. Also, as Credit Unions are not for profit, any money made is reinvested back into the running of the Credit Union and the local area, allowing Credit Unions to continue to offer fair rates to all customers.
If you are eligible for a loan, our Credit Unions offer monthly and weekly repayment plans to suit your lifestyle. Your local Credit Union may also be able to offer you a larger loan.
