How Much Does A Provident Loan Cost? - Loan Interest Rates

Provident Loan Interest Rates

So how much do Provident actually charge for their loans? Well there are a few factors to take into consideration which effect how much you will pay. The most obvious factor is how much you іnіtіаllу borrow. The more you borrow the more interest you will be required to pay. The other factor that influences the amount you pay is how long you take a loan out over. The shortest term you can take a loan out over is 23 weeks, the most common term is 31 weeks and you аlѕо have the option of taking a 52 week loan. There are аlѕо options for larger loans where you can pay the money back over 81 or 106 weeks.

So first of all let s look at the standard 31 week loans that provident offer. The APR on these loans is 365.1. You can borrow up to  500 pounds on a 31 week loan, so below is a table of the interest charges for loans taken over 31 weeks from Provident Personal Credit.

If you want a slightly lower payment plan then you can take a loan out over 52 weeks. For a 52 week loan Provident customers can take out loans of up to  1000. The APR on the 52 week loans is 272.2. So again, below is a table of charges and interest rates on a 52 week loan.

If you have been a Provident customer for a while and have a good payment history, then you will have the option of taking out a larger loan. Provident offer loans of up to  2500 and these can run over 106 weeks which is bаѕісаllу just over 2 years. The payments on these are less than the 52 week loans as they are stretched out over longer, but you will end up paying more back. 106 week loans are really only for large loans, in fact the minimum you can borrow at 106 weeks is  500, but to give you an idea of payments and interest here is a table of charges.
