StepUP Loans- Darwin
The StepUP Loans Scheme provides access to low interest loans between $800 and $3000 for clients on low incomes. To qualify for a loan clients must hold a Centrelink Healthcare card or Pension card or be eligible for Family Tax Benefit Part A and have lived at their current address for at least 3 months. Loan applications can be made for personal, domestic or household purposes but we cannot assist with Bond money or consolidation of existing loans.
The AddsUp Matched Savings Plan is only offered to clients who have successfully repaid their StepUp loan. To qualify clients must hold a Centrelink Healthcare card or Pension card or be eligible for Family Tax Benefit Part A and get a letter of recommendation from their StepUP worker. Clients who save $500 in a period of 6-12 months in a NAB Smart Reward Saver account will then have their $500 savings matched dollar for dollar. Further conditions apply.
This program is funded by NAB and administered by Good Shepherd Microfinance
