About Us

Hello! We’re Nimble. The truth is, we’ve been nimble for a long time. We started our journey way back in 2005 and it’s not exactly a normal start-up tale. Our founders poured their heart, soul and every penny they earned into the early days of Nimble. In fact, they were so determined to make Nimble a success, they could often be found mowing lawns or picking up odd jobs to get the money together to make the magic happen. And it did happen - since then we’ve funded over 1.7 million loans to our customers all over Australia. Nimble (then called Cash Doctors) was born and the journey into making lending better for everyone began.

Nimble Timeline

We wanted to remove the traditional barriers associated with lending. We knew that money needed to be accessible to those who needed it most and it needed to be quick, easy and painless. We made it happen. In 2009, we became the first company in Australia to crack paperless applications. Then in 2011, we were able to offer straight-through processing. In 2013 we began to pay our customers every day of the week. By 2016, we had funded 1 million Nimble loans. We were able to serve our customers, again and again, they kept coming back and we kept delivering on our promises.

Then, in 2019, we thought…. hey, we’re good at this whole lending thing, let’s build some new products for our customers. We knew that things could be better for the Australian customer and so we applied the same Nimble logic - removing barriers, providing solutions and continuing to make lending better for everyone. 

The Nimble future is bright, the vision is big and the team are excited. Talking of the team, here are the people behind the Nimble brand.
