Rainy Day Loans

Sometimes you need to borrow but don't want to use up your savings deposited with MBCU. This might be to cover Christmas, for birthdays, for a holiday or for some other reason. If you keep enough in your MBCU account to cover the loan, we call this a Rainy Day loan and we charge a much lower interest rate for these.

  • Borrow less than you have deposited with us.
  • Repay within 5 years, sooner if you wish.
  • Repay weekly or monthly.
  • Interest rate 0.33% per month (4.1% 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 about £108 per month and you'll pay about £2605 in total
  • Borrow £1000 and repay in 12 months: this will cost £85 per month and you'll pay about £1021 in total
