A safe way to borrow
Has your washing machine packed in? Has your car failed its MOT? Or, do you just need some cash to see you through to pay day? Whatever the reason, Fusion can help with a loan from £50 to £500. Further loans may be up to £2,000.
Why not compare our interest rates to other lenders and see how much a Fusion loan could save you?
Or take a look at the Money Saving Expert Website?
Interest is calculated daily on your reducing loan balance. There are no penalty clauses for paying a loan earlier than your agreement.
All loans also benefit from free life insurance* and, as long as you keep up your repayments, there will be no extra fees or charges.
Loans are available to everyone, over 18, who lives, works or volunteers in the Lichfield or Cannock Chase District areas. Pop in to the office or telephone and talk to a member of our friendly team. (please note that our usual collection points are closed during the Covid crisis).
How Much Can I Borrow?
Fusion operates a lending policy designed to meet the needs of individual members. The amount you could borrow is always based on your ability to repay.
The amount that Fusion Credit Union will lend to its members is £50 – £500 for the first loan. Subsequent loans may be up to £2,000.
Terms of the loan are determined by a loan committee and are considered on the financial information you provide at the time of your application.
The maximum term of repayment for a loan is normally 24 months (2 years).
How to Apply
Members may apply to borrow from Fusion Credit Union either:
Having made regular payments into the savings account for three consecutive months.
Instantly if in receipt of a State Benefit. With your consent we can arrange for your benefit to be paid to Fusion Credit Union directly. This will be split:
As an agreed amount to your Savings Account which you can access anytime.
As an agreed amount to pay off the loan
All Loans are subject to an affordability check. You will normally be asked to provide proof of your income and expenditure on your application.
We use a member’s track record of savings and borrowing when assessing loan applications.
In line with normal lending practices the credit union also uses a credit reference bureau to conduct credit searches.

One of the unique benefits of the credit union is that it provides insurance protection on loans up to a maximum of £10,000, for members aged between 18 and 69 years old.
This protection is provided at no extra cost, and means that should a borrower die, the cost of their outstanding loan balance will be settled.
As with all insurance cover, there are some exclusions with regard to pre-existing medical conditions. Full details are available on request
