Cash Loans

In 2018, we helped our customers with an average amount lent for a small loan at $710 and the average amount lent for a medium loan at $3,112.

We know what it's like when unexpected bills pop up. Or it might be something like that awful feeling of your favourite band’s tickets going on sale a few days before payday and there's just not enough cash to make it stretch. You’re not alone! We’ve approved over 1.5 million loans for Australians over the years, and these are people just like you- people who just needed a quick hand with their Cash Loan.

We know a thing or two about Cash Loans. We also know that today’s world moves quickly - super quickly. The expectation to make things happen easily and quickly is huge - and rightly so. We live in a tech-equipped world, we’re more advanced than ever before, so why expect anything less than speed and agility when it comes to your loan?

The good news is that Nimble meets that expectation and then some. We realised a long time ago that the Cash Loan business needed to change. People need fast loans with flexibility and personability. And that’s why we’re here - offering short-term finance, not a long-term problem. With loans available online from $300 - $5,000 for when you need a little extra money, our flexible repayments are designed to put you in control.

What is a Cash Loan?

Simply put, a Cash Loan is an unsecured small personal loan. You can apply for a Nimble loan online with a relatively short repayment period for up to 22 months.

At Nimble, when you borrow money for a Cash Loan, you have the option to stretch out your repayment schedule with smaller instalments that are designed to suit you and your loan needs**.

We keep it simple with a stress-free Cash Loan and will only ever lend you what you can comfortably repay. There are no shackles or long term commitments like with credit cards.

**See our full Fee Statement for fee details. If you reschedule your repayments after you confirm your loan, additional fees and charges may apply.

How can I get a Cash Loan?

Despite the old school name, a Cash Loan isn’t really cash. Like most loans, a Cash Loan is paid in your bank account via bank transfer or alternatively can be paid onto a Nimble Visa Prepaid Card.

Getting a Cash Loan is relatively easy - especially with Nimble. Why? Because we make loans easy - that was our purpose when we first started out all those years ago and we stick by it today.

Here’s the deal. We knew way back when we started (2005) that the current practice for borrowing Cash Loans was outdated, difficult, and absolutely not for everyone. So we started to make things easier - building our lending platform online and ensuring that our process was easy from start to finish. You can start by selecting how much money you want and how long you would like to borrow it for. With our smart technology, you can apply online at any time of the day, from any device. Forget time-consuming paperwork and painful wait times - we pride ourselves on fast funds.

Once you've gone through our quick application process and we’ve verified the details you've provided, most people will get a decision within minutes. Once approved you’ll have the money in under an hour (if confirmed before 4.30pm AEST during banking days).*
