High interest

I have had experience of only one Greenwoods agent and she is LOVELY. Very reasonable and fair. No unkindness or being judgemental at all. She is on the customers side. All that she asks is that you are honest with her, no hiding behind curtains if you can't pay. "We all have weeks like that" is...

Short term fast pay loans

high intrest

Greenwoods financial services as far as I aware are part of the Provident group. I must admit I haven't needed them for a while, but when most turned there back on me Greenwoods were very helpfull. You can request loans from £50.00 to £500.00 which is ideal if you need some quick cash on a short...

High interest

Greenwoods Personal Credit is the sister company of Provident. With Greenwoods you basically borrow money and then pay it back at a fixed repayment either weekly, fortnightly or monthly. This fixed amount that you agree will never go up. These repayments are collected by an agent who, in most...

“Terrible to say the least”

Ermm none

Too many in my opinion to list.

Basically, I was approved for a £500 loan. New guy working for them, Hadn't a clue. Said there was no need for a birth certificate, Just show us your address. Fair enough. He's on his way, But is half an hour late. So I call him. He said he'd be 5 minutes, Just near my house. Called 20 minutes...

very expensive there are cheaper options

I can't agree more with the review by John Hindle, Greenwoods charges some of the highest interest rates about. Before I took out a cash loan I did some research into interest charges and I hope some one will find this info helpful Based on a £500 cash loan Greenwoods was the highest £500 loan...

product good

agents carry on like loan sharks

I have been a customer of Greenwood Personal Credit for just over two years, and last June, I needed a loan and my local agent lent me the money out of his own pocket with added interest , rather than putting it through the greenwood system, which I believe is totally wrong. He also acted like a...

Be very careful when arranging a loan through Greenwoods. If you are a consistently good payer, they will throw money at you, to the point when you are borrowing far too much then you can actually afford. Greenwood also fine their own agents if they fail to collect a certain fixed sum from their...
