Jacaranda falls within the mid-sized lending space, with payments of anywhere from $2,100 to $25,000. This makes it different from payday lenders; Jacaranda follows the National Consumer Credit Protection Act of 2009.

Jacaranda offers personal loans with fixed rates and terms, with a maximum loan period of 48 months. Loans are unsecured, meaning they can be used for pretty much anything, such as a wedding, holiday, or household expense. Jacaranda also offers secured car loans.

Like other personal lenders, Jacaranda has a tiered interest-rate approach. This generally means that the higher your credit score, the lower your interest rate.

Unlike other personal lenders, however, Jacaranda offers only fixed-rate loans - not variable. This ensures your repayments stay the same and aren’t susceptible to wider interest rate movements.

  • Monthly fees: Depend on the amount you borrow and the term of your loan. Debited monthly in advance on the first day of the loan term, and each month after. Not applicable to cash boost loans.
