Tenbury NILS (No Interest Loan Scheme)

Description:

The Tenbury No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) is a a registered charity providing people who live in Herefordshire, Shropshire and Worcestershire with loans up to £400 to pay for essential items purchased from local businesses.  Borrowers pay back only what they borrow with no fees or extra charges.

Clients must have lived locally for at least three months, be over 18, or have a guarantor, and have the means to repay the loan.

Loans can be requested for:

  • essential household electrical items such as washing machines, refrigerators, tumble driers and heaters;
  • the means to access employment, for example, purchasing a public transport season ticket or tools and equipment;
  • the means to access education, for example, purchasing a public transport season ticket or school uniforms.

NILS works directly with local suppliers of the goods or services, they do not provide cash loans.  They expect you to repay the loan over a period of not more than 24 months, and do take into account your financial circumstances.  They have respectful assessment and manageable payment processes.

Tenbury NILS is open on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 10am to 2pm.
