Given the important role that Scotwest plays in helping improve the financial lives of our Members, particularly during these uncertain times, we want to assure you that we are here to help you with a range of fair and ethical loans for whatever you need right now, whether it’s for home improvements, a new set of wheels, or help with the day to day.

Our Loans

If you are not already a member and would like to apply for a loan, you can apply for membership at the same time here.

Every loan application is carefully and individually assessed; decisions are based on a range of factors, always considering your income and expenditure and ability to repay.

There are no fees and the rates are competitive. Interest on all Scotwest loans is calculated daily and the rate advertised for the loan is the rate you will get, no matter your individual circumstances.
