Fair and transparent loans: the Saver’s Loan
This is Gloucestershire Credit Union’s standard loan for members who’ve saved consistently over a period of at least 13 weeks.
The amount that can be borrowed is based upon the amount of savings in the member’s account:
Your first loan:
- 3 x the total amount that you have in your savings account up to a maximum of £5,000.
- The loan must be repaid with 36 months (3 years).
- You must keep savings in your account equal to a third (33%) of the loan until the loan is paid off.
All other loans:
- 5 x the total amount that you have in your savings account up to a maximum of £10,000.
- The loan must be repaid within 60 months (5 years).
- You must keep savings in your account equal to a fifth (20%) of the loan until the loan is paid off.
Our approach is people-focused so we won’t spring any nasty surprises on you hidden away in the small print – because there is no small print.
When you take out a loan with us, from the start you:
- will know how long it’ll take to repay your loan
- will know how much the instalments will be
- won’t be penalised for repaying the loan early
- won’t find any set-up costs or no hidden fees
Interest is charged at a rate of 0.6% to 2% per month (APR 8.73% to 26.8%) depending on the loan terms, your circumstances, and credit history.

"Gloucestershire Credit Union is fantastic."
"I have been both a saver and a borrower, the first and most obvious benefit is the low interest rate, but the self discipline the union encourages means that for the first time in my adult life I have become a saver. I would recommend the credit union to anyone working or unemployed.”
