What Is A Small Loan?

Not every loan has to be for an excessive amount of money; in fact, it’s often quite the opposite and we just need a small amount of money to help us for a short term when we’re in a tight spot. At buffa we offer small loans of between £100 - £1,000 for when you need a little bit of extra finance to get you through the month or to cover an unexpected emergency.

If you do find yourself in a position where you require a little bit of financial assistance, a small loan might be the solution for you.

To be approved for a small loan, you will need to be a UK bank account holder over the age of 18 who has a regular income. This is important because you should only take out a small loan if you can afford to keep up with the regular repayments.

This is the most important consideration when deciding whether to take out a small loan – can you repay it in the agreed time and make the necessary repayments on time? If the answer is yes, then a small loan could be just right for you.

We strive to help anyone who needs financial assistance, so we are able to offer small loans to people with a poor or limited credit history, and provide them with a short term solution to their financial worries. Our flexible repayment options also make it easy for you to make the repayments suit your situation and our black and white approach means there’s no nasty hidden surprises and no unexpected fees, rates or charges.
