  • We’re so much more than a short-term lender

    Our loans are designed to grow with you. When you apply for your first loan with us, we’ll be able to offer you up to £800 to be repaid over 6 months. As we see that you’re paying back this first loan, you can get access to bigger loans lower rates and for longer terms. For example, your second loan with Oakam can go up to £1,750, which can be repaid over 6, 9 or 12 months.

    It’s all based on your needs and your repayment behaviour. Our loans go up to £5,000 for customers who have successfully borrowed and paid back with us, and interest rates decrease dramatically we see positive repayment behaviour on your previous loan.

    But there’s more! Not only can you unlock access to cheaper credit and bigger loans over time, we’ll also let the credit bureaus know that you are a reliable borrower by sending them records of your on-time repayments, helping you to move up and along the credit ladder.
