Small Loans - My Canada Payday

Posted on Friday 21 August 2020

We tend to think about loans in big amounts—like when you need to take out a mortgage or finance a car. But what if you don’t need thousands of dollars? Do you have to take out a huge loan and put yourself into more debt than what you actually need? Thankfully, small loans are available to help you!

With small loans, you can still get the funds that you need without putting your bank account thousands of dollars in the hole. There are plenty of reasons why you might need to get a small loan, such as:

  • Replacing a broken washer or dryer
  • Covering the cost of an urgent home repair
  • Paying for a new set of tires or brakes on your car
  • Consolidating a few credit cards to pay off your debt
  • Establishing a positive lending history to boost your credit
  • Getting a little extra cash to help pay your rent or mortgage

You could even use a small loan to get a little bit of extra spending cash on your vacation, or to help pay for a quick weekend getaway. When it comes to how you can use small loans, the possibilities are endless! But it isn’t always easy to find the best place to get small loans. Banks prefer to lend in higher amounts (after all, that’s how they make money) and your local credit union might not offer loans for just a few hundred dollars.

If you need a small loan but aren’t sure where to look, you’ve come to the right place. Keep reading to find out all about what a small loan is, where to get one, and what to expect when taking out small loans.


What is a Small Loan?

A small loan is a type of loan that comes with shorter lending terms and lower amounts, making them a great option for anyone who needs to supplement a paycheque or consolidate a few bills. They can also be a means to establish a positive lending history and boost your credit score, as small loans typically have less strict requirements when it comes to credit. Small loan amounts typically range from anywhere between $100 up to $1,000 or more.

And because these kinds of loans are designed to be paid back on your paycheque schedule, they are much more manageable and only require a few payments to repay. As a result, many Canadians (about 2 million) prefer choosing small loans instead of traditional loans for their one-time expenses.

What is the Process to Getting a Small Loan?

Getting a loan with MyCanadaPayday is simple. All you need to do is have a reliable internet connection and fifteen minutes to spare in order to get started—and you don’t even need to leave your couch to apply.

First, you’ll need to make sure that you are eligible by:

  • Being at least 18 years old
  • Having at least 60 days of banking history
  • Providing proof that you have steady income from an employer

At MyCanadaPayday, we believe that everyone should have access to the emergency loans that we need—which is why we don’t require specific credit scores or income ranges. Everyone is welcome to apply!

Second, you’ll have to set aside 15–20 minutes to fill out our online application. Once submitted, you’ll get an email from us in as little as 30 minutes with an approval. Once you have signed the lending agreement, you can expect your funds to be available either the next business day (new borrowers) or within minutes (returning borrowers). Because funds are distributed through secure EMT bank transfers, you don’t have to waste any time worrying about when or how your loan will arrive—it will be distributed directly into your bank account.

Finally, you can choose to repay your loan back on either a 30-day paycheque schedule or a 60-day schedule. Just let us know what works best for you and your financial health, and we’ll adjust our terms for your needs. After all, our goal is to provide small loans that are both convenient and affordable—not loans that are designed to lock you into debt and drain your bank account.
