Welcome to the WA NILS Loan Application
WA NILS Loans are available up to $1,500.00.
To be eligible for NILS you must have a healthcare or pension card, earn under $45,000, have lived in your current residence for three months, and have a willingness and capacity to repay the loan. There are no credit checks.
NILS is a leading example of Circular Community Credit. When a borrower makes a repayment, those funds then become available to someone else in the community. Clients recognise that repaying their loan means someone else is given the same opportunity.
Please note that a WA NILS Loan can’t be used for the following:
- Cash Loans
- To Pay Bills
- To Pay Rent
- Motor Vehicles (refer to StepUP Loans)
Please refer to www.erconnect.org.au for assistance with the above.
