Is a Pera Loan right for you?

Western Circle Ltd. trading as Pera Loans provides payday loans in the UK. Our responsible short term loans are designed to help our customers get through a temporary financial shortage. Pera loans should never be used as a long term borrowing solution. We are not always the cheapest option on the market, so always ask yourself: Is a Pera Loan right for my current financial need? Do I really need this loan?

We encourage our customers to compare our products and interest rates with alternative lenders on the market before borrowing from us, as we know that we are not the cheapest loan provider.
