Members Loans

Sometimes you need to borrow more than you have deposited with MBCU. Because this presents a greater risk to MBCU, we charge a higher interest rate than for secured loans.

  • Borrow up to 3 times your current balance with MBCU.
  • Repay within 5 years, sooner if you wish.
  • Repay weekly or monthly.
  • Interest rate 2.5% per month (34.49% APR).

How much will it cost?

It depends how much you borrow, and for how long. For example:

  • Borrow £2500 and repay in 24 months: this will cost £139.78 per month and you'll pay £3354.77 in total
  • Borrow £1000 and repay in 12 months: this will cost £97.49 per month and you'll pay £1169.85 in total
