About – Cobol

When you have a cash emergency, the last thing you want to do is struggle to find someone you can trust, who's cost match your financial needs and whose service will leave the best impression on you. At Cobol, we have all of this covered.

Cobol has been helping thousands of individuals in South Africa with affordable personal loans since 2006 and we continue to do so as fellow citizens encounter more and more financial strain in our country. 

With us, when you’re faced with that unexpected bill that you can’t repay on your own, we offer instant loans to get you the much-need cash in no time at all!

Security matters the most

When it comes to security - we are the best in the business. There are a few things that we take pride in, but one of the major ones is our client’s security of information when they hand it over to us in trust.

You can have peace of mind that your information will not be shared with anyone and that we will treat your financial situation with the discretion and respect it deserves.

What does Cobol mean though? We like to explain the meaning of our name because it means “us”. We feel that it’s just Cobol or just the client, it’s “us”, and “we” have the agreement, and we are walking a journey together for you to free yourself from debt.

Cobol is a registered Credit Provider in terms of the National Credit Act, so you can count on responsible lending from us.

If you’re in need of a loan, we have one for you. Instant loans are the most popular and also the way forward for all your instant cash needs.

Your details will be verified and at this point, if you are approved, then a contract will be emailed to you for final approval.

Need a loan? Need peace of mind? Cobol will give you both

We aim to keep our monthly instalments as affordable as possible for all consumers. Everyone has a different financial situation and we take that into account when assessing the loan applications. That is why we have terms that range up to 6 months for those who might need it.

If you find that you’re being overloaded with information and are struggling to understand a few things or still have questions, we have a team of expert consultants that are ready to help you whenever you need it. Simply call in and someone will guide you in the right direction.

Avoid the debt trap

Our costs are carefully considered for those in a financial emergency. There will always be fees for a payday loan, but that doesn’t mean that it needs to impact you financially.

Cobol wants to help you get back on your feet, so we will assess your expenses and income and work out a package that suits your needs as well as your budget.

Avoid the debt trap! If you find yourself over-indebted already, try debt counselling as a solution for now.

In a nutshell

You can expect an easy online application with approval in just minutes! With same day quick loan pay outs over up to six month’s repayment terms, very seldom are individuals not approved.

We collect our payments via debit order, so you will have to have an active bank account, and remember that all our fees are inclusive of VAT, and you won’t be subjected to any hidden costs.
