  • Make sure you have the right product for your needs
  • Help you understand your loan and your financial situation
  • Ensure you receive a loan you can realistically repay
  • Try to find someone else who can help, if we think our products aren’t right for you

Foresters Community Finance is an ethical not-for-profit lender.

Our Community Loans are assessed by our committee based on your individual circumstances. Once we receive all documentation from you,  we aim to advise you of the decision on your application quickly. Approval is based on your ability and willingness to repay the loan.

You can make additional payments at any time without incurring penalty fees.

We have a one-off loan establishment fee, which you can add into the loan. There are no hidden costs or early exit fees.

We believe in lending responsibly to help people regain financial independence, and treating all our customers with respect and dignity.
