Good Money Southport helping Fern avoid the sharks

A few years ago, 38-year-old Fern Hunter was facing a financial dilemma. Her partner had broken his leg, her car registration was due, and she needed to keep it on the road to get herself and her partner to medical appointments.

Fern was searching online for ways to make ends meet when she came across the Good Money store at Southport.

“The website mentioned no-interest loans for low income earners – at first I thought it was too good to be true, but I was running out of options, so I gave them a call.

“The staff were so welcoming and helpful. They explained everything about the no-interest and low interest loan options, helped me complete my application, and within a couple of days, my loan was approved and my car rego was paid,” Ms Hunter said.

Fern has taken out a no-interest loan each year since then to pay for her car registration.

“Without access to a no-interest loan, my only options would be to go to a payday lender which is scary, or just let the registration lapse, which just isn’t an option for us.

“With a no-interest loan, the repayments are so easy and affordable, and the staff at the Good Money store help you create a budget, so I’ve learnt a lot about managing my finances too.”

Fern encouraged anyone struggling to make ends meet to consider a no-interest loan.

“Whether it’s your car rego, or you need a new washing machine, or the kids need uniforms to go back school, a no-interest loan can be a lifeline without adding any financial pressure.”
