No Interest Loans - Broadmeadows

 

A fair go for everyone to access interest-free loans.

 

Volunteers assist people to access fair, safe and equitable credit through the No Interest Loans Scheme (NILS). NILS are interest-free loans intended to provide individuals and families in need with money for essential items and services to make life easier.

 

Funds can be used for:

  • Household items like fridges, washing machines, stoves, dryers, freezers and furniture
  • Some medical and dental services
  • Education essentials such as computers and textbooks
  • Car-related expenses including registration and repairs
  • Essential vehicles including cars, motorcycles, and mobility scooters (credit check required)
  • Mobile phones.
