About Us

Psst, over here!

Hey there! We’re Little Loans, and we’re proud to be making BIG waves.

We’re guessing you’ve dropped by because you’re after a few money-saving tips, or you’re thinking about taking out a loan. Maybe you might just really like robots, which is also cool - absolutely no judgment from us.

Before we talk money, shall we get to know each other? Come a little closer – we don’t byte!

All Good Things Come in Little Packages

Spoiler alert: Little Loans isn’t actually run by robots! (Don’t tell the little guys that, though – they like to think they’re in charge.)

Little Loans is a trading style of Digitonomy Limited, a financial technology company specialising in finding short-term loans for customers who may have struggled to get credit in the past.

We’ve been around for quite some time now, and we LOVE what we do. Digitonomy Limited was established in 2013 and, between us, we have over 120 years’ worth of combined experience in financial services.

We understand that everyone is different, and everyone has a different credit history; with that in mind, we want to provide a responsible and inclusive financial environment for everyone. Our aim is to help you find a suitable product, while using our blog and resource centre to promote financial confidence, boost your budgeting skills, and help you take control of your money.

We like to think that we’re a little bit more than a credit broker…

Little by Little: How We’re Making an Impact

So, how do we do things here at the Little Loans HQ?

Well, we invite anyone – regardless of their credit score – to check their eligibility for a loan.

Our online application should take no more than five minutes to fill in. Based on the information provided, we’ll then set the “robots” to work running the ‘soft search’ eligibility check.

Want to know the really great news? The soft search won’t affect your credit score – hurray!

We will scour our panel of lenders to find a suitable loan. This process can take around a minute.

If we manage to make a match, we will redirect you to the lender, who will take it from there. Please remember that being pre-approved does not guarantee acceptance, and you will still need to successfully complete additional checks by the lender.

Once in the capable hands of the lender, they will run a full credit search (sometimes known as a ‘hard search’). They may require some further information from you as part of their application process; this may include ID or recent payslips.

If you are approved for a loan by the lender, the money could be sent to your bank the same day. It’s worth noting that your bank’s policies and procedures will determine exactly when the money will show in your account.

Sometimes, it might not be possible for us to match you to a suitable loan.

If this is the case, we may recommend or transfer you to an alternative product or service you might be interested in which, of course, you are not obliged to use if it doesn’t feel right for you. Please note that some of these alternative services may incur fees. We might send you some tips on how to increase your credit rating and improve your chances of being approved for financial products in the future; or we may simply refer you to our blog and resource centre, which includes loads of handy hints on how to save money.
