Loans at Farranree Credit Union Limited

The two most important things about a loan are, being able to borrow the money and being able to repay it. At Farranree Credit Union we encourage you to manage your money carefully by structuring loans around your needs and your ability to repay.

  • There are no administration charges, hidden fees or transactions charges
  • Repayments to suit you; we will help you settle on an amount that is realistic for your circumstances and on a realistic term.
  • Credit union interest rates are fair and reasonable and capped by law
  • Repayments are calculated on your reducing loan balance, so you pay less interest with each repayment
  • You can pay your loan by standing order from your bank for no extra fee
  • You can pay off your loan early, make additional lump sum repayments or increase your regular repayments, without a penalty. Other lenders may charge you extra for paying them back faster!
  • In the event of your death, your credit union loan is insured - subject to terms, conditions and eligibility criteria - at no direct cost to you

Your application is treated in the utmost confidence and will be considered on its own merits. In deciding, whether or not to grant the loan, we take into account your record of savings and loan repayments, as well as your ability to repay.

Our loan rate of 9.9% APR means you can borrow at a reasonable rate of credit compared to other financial providers – compare us to other financial service providers and you will see that you get a great deal at Farranree Credit Union.
