Our products and services are of a superior quality

Applying for a quick micro-loan with Woolworth is simple and easy.

You can do so by visiting us in branch and making an application or by applying for a loan online via our modern online shopping and lending platform.

Do you qualify to apply with Woolworths?

You will have to be over the age of 18, employed full time and earning R2,000 or more per month, in possession of a South African identity document and 3-month bank statements to apply with us.

One of the most common questions that we get asked is whether we can offer bad credit loans to people who are blacklisted or have a bad credit history.

While we evaluate each application individually, we are required by law to run a credit check to ensure the customer is in a position to afford the cash loan.

I meet all the credit requirements but my personal loan application was turned down

Meeting all our credit requirements doesn’t necessarily mean your personal loan application will be approved. There are a number of factors that need to be considered before we actually send you the money.

Should the client not have enough credibility, we won’t be able to approve his loan. This means you may have more than one personal loan under your name that you are already paying for. If this is the case, we need to check whether you will have enough money to pay for an additional advance plan.

Is there something I can do to increase my chances of approval?

The best thing to do to increase your chances of getting your personal loan approved is to start saving instead of spending. If a loan is not really necessary, there is no need to apply for credit that you don’t really need.

Finish paying off your loans as soon as possible. If you are able to pay for your personal loan earlier than the required date, even better. Do whatever it takes to ensure that your name and your credit profile is on the right track.

I am happy that I can still afford to pay some of my other financial obligations after I have paid my Woolworths personal loan.
