How do I make my repayments?

As with borrowing, we try to make repaying, as member friendly as possible: we try to tailor a repayment schedule to suit your individual circumstances.
You can repay weekly, fortnightly or monthly, with loan terms from one to five years. ***
You can make your payment directly over the counter at either of our offices, or for your convenience, we can also accept payments, by standing order, debit card or direct from your bank or building society. 
When your loan is issued you will sign a promissory note: (a legally binding document) which clearly outlines your repayment agreement.

What if I can no longer meet the repayments agreed in my promissory note?
