Bridge Loans – unique short-term credit solutions

Get value for money with a short-term loan from Bridge Loans, one of the country's most popular lenders.

Bridge Loans have an exclusive credit scoring system that's used when clients undertake a short-term loan application. Seeing that this process is automatic, it can’t be tampered with by loan agents or anyone for that matter. 

Instead, technology does all the work for you. This is a great system that makes the loan process easier and more convenient. Your application is decided based on your credit status and affordability and remains free from bias and human error. 

A reputable lender you can trust

Bridge Loans is a registered credit service provider that's registered with the National Credit Act 34 of 2005.

Having said that, Bridge Loans are also a juristic representation in terms of Section 13 (1) of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act, confirming their client-centric approach and reliability.

With so much fraud that is happening in and around South Africa, it's important to know the status and rank of the online loan company you're dealing with. However, it's safe to say that Bridge Loans are as real as they come.

A variety of loan options available

The amount that will be offered to clients will vary according to the affordability of that individual client.

Due to the monthly bills and payments that people have, they might not be able to take out large sums of credit from providers.

They want to ensure that you can still have enough money to carry on throughout the month after you paid all your bills and debts. The short-term loans they offer are between R300 and R7100.

Loan repayment

The amount of time you have to pay your short-term loan varies according to the repayment option you've chosen.

Essentially, the faster you repay your loan, the faster you'll finish. You can choose between a period of 1 to 6 months.

Secure, safe, and accessible

You can rest assured that the information and details that you provide are strictly confidential and solely for the record-keeping of Bridge Loans.

Even though their head offices are in Pretoria you'll be able to apply from anywhere in South Africa online or over the phone.

Bridge Loans will help you make your money go further

Before you're granted short-term loan approval you'll be asked to accept their terms and conditions.

Being a credit service provider of choice, there are rules and regulations that need to be adhered to. Accepting their terms and conditions is mandatory for all and their automated review system ensures this compliance.

Step 1: Apply

The first step is filling in an online application form. On the form, you'll be asked to submit your personal details as well as salary information.

They have to establish whether you can afford to pay back the loan they're offering you. The last thing that they want to see is a client failing to meet his financial obligations.

Step 2: A quick telephonic conversation

After you've applied for the loan, one of their consultants will call you back. The reason they do this is so that they can have a better idea of the kind of person they are loaning their money to.

Also, it's another verification method they use to confirm if the details and information you've presented to them are true. The consultants are friendly people who will speak to you at a time that is suitable for you and your schedule.

Step 3: Supporting documents

The supporting documents are often the last phase of their online loan application process.

After you've spoken to their highly skilled agents and they're satisfied with the information that you've given them, you'll then be asked to send through your supporting documents so that the loan application process can proceed.

Step 4: Receive the money

Once you've agreed to proceed with the offer they provided you with, the funds will be paid out to your account, typically on the same day.

They always aim to create good relationships with their clients. So, it's very important for them that you answer honestly and provide accurate and factual details.
