Do you need extra support for your daily expenses?
No Interest Loans Schemes (NILS) provides access to low-interest loans for household items to people who earn a low income. These loans allow you to purchase items such as white goods, furniture, and more, without having to worry about paying fees or interest.
How does NILS Work?
Loans are usually given from $200 up to a maximum of $2,000. This amount can vary depending on your financial circumstances. You can use the loan to buy energy and water-efficient white goods (like a fridge, washing machine, dryer, or hot-water heater) and household items such as furniture, a computer, an oven, or a TV.
You may also be able to use the loan to cover car expenses, medical costs, or education expenses. The loan can’t be used for cash advances or debt repayments.
Your repayment amounts can be tailored to suit your circumstances, so you don’t get caught short. The term of the loan is usually 12-24 months, with no fees or interest charged.
NILS is a recycling pool of money – as you make your repayments, the money becomes available for the next borrower. By paying back your loan, you’ll help other people benefit from the same opportunity.
