Why opt for a bad credit loan?

Why a bad credit loan might be an option for you. Plus, see how much you could borrow.


Perhaps you’ve approached the bank but they weren’t willing to lend to you, at least while your credit score is low. Bad credit loans are specifically created for people with a limited or poor credit history.

How to get a loan with bad credit?

There are even some people who, because they’ve never borrowed any money or had a credit card, for example, have not been able to build up a good credit history.

Whether you’ve been declared bankrupt in the past or had a county court judgement (CCJ) relating to unpaid debts, Bamboo will still consider you for a loan.

How much could I borrow?

You could borrow from £1000 to £8000, and with a Bamboo bad credit loan the money could be in your account today.

How a bad credit loan could improve your credit

Over time, a bad credit loan could actually improve your credit score. While you’re making your regular monthly payments, this shows you’re not a current credit risk. Plus, with a bad credit loan from Bamboo, you’ll know exactly how much your monthly payments are so you can plan ahead and be sure you’ll meet them.

How does a bad credit loan work?

We’ll make a quick decision based on a number of things, including your current credit score.

If you don’t know your credit history, you can find out by using Equifax, Experian and/or Callcredit.

What types of bad credit loans does Bamboo offer?

We offer a range of loans for people with low credit scores.

With a guarantor loan guarantor loans, you choose somebody to act as your guarantor, which means they vouch for you being able to make your repayments.

However, if your credit score is fair to good, you may not need a bad credit loan – an unsecured loan may be a better choice.

How does an unsecured loan differ from a guarantor loan?

With a guarantor loan, you choose somebody to act as your guarantor, which means they vouch for you being able to make your loan repayments. If you’re unable to make your repayments for any reason, they agree to cover them.

This can be ideal if you don’t have a great credit score. However, if your credit score is fair to good, an unsecured loan may be a better choice for you.
