Quick response and good service but interest rates are high

published

Customer service was very good and friendly.

However, an indicative quote was provided with the following details
Loan amount: $15,375 – 12 months
Origination Fee: $375
Weekly Repayments: $365 to $385 (depending on the strength of your business)
This means that the total repayment would be respectively $18,980 and 20,020 This means that the interest rate would be 23.4% (strong business) and 30.2% (weak business) over the full amount. As the full amount reduces over the year the actual interest rates are even higher. So shortly, this may work for very short and quick coverage of A/P gaps or WCR dips but please do your calculations. There are far better offers out there.

Best avoid unless you are desperate AND have a means to pay it back

published

I took a short term loan with Prospa as I needed funds quick and knew I could pay it back so in that sense it was helpful.

- However, the interest rate is very high so you are likely to pay half your loan back again unless you pay early
- the load it up with fees, we changed our bank accounts around and two payments were day late - $100 each time plus extra interest.
- staff seem to turnover too

Avoid these guys - talk to a fiance or mortgage broker as there are much better and cheaper options. If you are desparate you definitley need to avoid these guys. Look around.

Hi Leah, Prospa’s rate varies based on your industry, how long you have been in business, the health of your cash flow and other factors.
