Loans by Period

1 Week Loans for Students

There are times in life - hopefully not too often, but sometimes - when you need just a little bit of money for all of a few days. The word “loan” can sound a bit scary and might have you thinking of limitless interest rates with other hidden costs…but not all loans are created equal.

Short term loans, such as weekly loans, for student emergencies is what we at Smart-Pig do. We’ve been there too; the reason we exist is because we couldn’t find a quick solution that suited students’ needs. When you’re met with a near-ridiculous and red-tape situation that delays money you know you have coming, the loss of control can be maddening - through no fault of your own, you now have no cash.

In less than 2 hours you could have funds, loaned from Smart Pig, in your account. Borrow for just 7 days to tide you over (or shorter, or for longer up to a maximum of 6 months); you may well find that the cost of the loan is more than made up in its convenience.

For example, if you borrowed £100 for just 1 week you would only have to repay £105.60. So for the cost of a couple of pints (OK, almost one pint if you’re in London) you buy yourself the ability to carry on. Between that and going round with a begging bowl for a week, we think it’s a no-contest decision.


You Might Need A 1 Week Loan If… 

…your next student finance payment is delayed, or you’re going home a few days earlier than you realised (long-distance train tickets aren’t exactly cheap, even if that’s no guarantee for your train actually arriving…).
