You can use your Pepper Money personal loan for almost all purposes. This could be anything from a holiday, home improvements, household furnishings, car purchase or repairs, auto upgrades, debt consolidation, educational expenses, medical and cosmetic surgery, dental surgery, mortgage cost funding, vehicle deposit funding, and even a wedding, funeral or sporting equipment.
We do not offer loans for the following purposes:
- Debt consolidation of Pay Day lender debts
- Mortgage and credit arrears
- Payment of defaults and judgements
- Loans for business purposes
Yes, however the way our application process works is we first allow you to access your individual rate for free without it affecting your credit score. If you decide to proceed to an application, a credit check will be done.
A secured loan is secured against an asset that you own. This will be your car or other vehicle that can be registered as security against the loan. That means if you fail to make repayments on a secured loan, the asset (the security) may be taken [repossessed] as part of the agreement and sold with the proceeds of the sale used to cover the outstanding balance on the loan. Due to these loans being secured against assets, consumers can often borrow more at a lower interest rate, in comparison to an unsecured loan.
An unsecured loan is simply a personal loan that is not secured against an asset. Unsecured loans are usually offered at lower borrowing amounts and with a higher interest rate.
Pepper Money offers both unsecured and secured personal loan products.
Once you’ve received full approval on your loan and we have received the necessary documentation, the funds will typically be transferred into your nominated bank account the next business day (subject to your bank’s direct credit processing times).
Unfortunately at this time we do not accept applications for personal loan borrowers that have defaults on their credit report.

*Interest rates range from 6.95% p.a. (8.57% p.a. comparison rate) to 17.95% p.a. (19.53% p.a. comparison rate). Rates are correct as at 7 September 2020 and subject to change at any time. The actual interest rate applicable will depend on the individual borrower’s circumstances.
** All Comparison Rates are calculated based on an unsecured loan of $30,000 over a 5 year term. WARNING: This comparison rate is true only for the examples given and may not include all fees and charges. Different terms, fees or other loan amounts might result in a different comparison rate.
Loan repayment terms range from 18 to 84 months for secured loans. Repayment terms range from 18 to 36 months for unsecured loans between $5,000 and $7,999, and 18 to 84 months for unsecured loans from $8,000 to $40,000.
EXAMPLE: An unsecured personal loan of $30,000 borrowed over a term of 5 years with the minimum interest rate of 6.95%p.a. (8.57%p.a. comparison rate), would equate to an estimated minimum total amount payable of $36,883.60 via the weekly payment option (including a $495 establishment fee and $13 per month administration fee).
