StepUP Loans- Darwin
If you or your family are on a low income, you can obtain a low interest loan of between $800 and $3000 through StepUP Loans. To qualify for a loan, you must hold a Centrelink Healthcare card or Pension card or be eligible for Family Tax Benefit Part A and have lived at your 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 available if you have successfully repaid a StepUp loan. To qualify, you 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 your StepUP worker. If you save $500 in a period of 6-12 months in a NAB Smart Reward Saver account, you will be able to have $500 of savings matched dollar for dollar. Further conditions apply.
This program is funded by NAB and administered by Good Shepherd Microfinance.
