Are your loans secured or unsecured?
Our personal loans are unsecured, you do not have to be a homeowner or provide security in order to apply for a loan with Adage credit
What if I have a bad credit history?
In Adage Credit, credit checks are undertaken to enable Know Your Client by starting by identity and address verification manual:
– Proof of name (passport or driving license)
– Proof of address (tenancy agreement or utility bill)
– Proof of income (payslips or benefit letters)
– Bank statements (from the most recent 3 months)
If the manual verification is not satisfactory then we can proceed to the credit checks from the Agency. Our in-house software NOSCO Systems has a credit checks option CallCredit. We do use CallCredit to undertake any verification needed.
The undertaken search will enable us to:
- Check if potential client is creditworthy
- Checking out new client
- Look at client credit reports
- Monitor our clients
- Data sharing
