Not all lending tools are created equal. We've designed solutions that can give you a better way to borrow.

EVERYDAY LOAN

The Everyday Loan is a fixed rate loan with a quick approval decision. Loans are available in amounts up to $2,500. Plus, our rates are lower than most credit cards or other fast-cash loans. So, when unexpected costs come out of nowhere, there’s no need to panic.

Loan Terms

MONEY SMART CD LOAN

You can take out a loan for as little as $500, or more based on your ability to pay, then use the borrowed funds to open a certificate of deposit (CD) for the same amount. Just make fixed monthly payments on the loan, and when the loan is paid off, the CD with earned interest is yours!
