FinChoice is a financial service provider offering flexible loans to South Africans. Their aim is to be the best in the lending business scene in South Africa. By offering easy access to financial products through online processing, they’re able to cut queues and save their client’s time.
If you have a FinChoice account, you’ll be able to manage your loans better and monitor their status. You’ll also be given access to a full range of financial products and to FinChoice’s new website.
FinChoice offers 3 types of personal loan products with varying rates and terms.
A quick loan of R2 500 is awarded to eligible clients. The loan needs to be paid back on their next payday. This can be used for emergency purposes like sudden hospitalization.
FinChoice can loan up to R8 000 through this product. The borrowed money should be repaid within 6 months only.
This is the option for those looking for a bigger amount to be repaid over a longer timeframe. Under this product, FinChoice lends up to R30 000 which can be paid within 12, 24, or 36 months.
If you manage to repay the whole amount within 14 days, there will be no interest rates or fees to be imposed on the loan.
If you keep paying any of these loan products on time, you’ll be allowed to borrow a greater amount the next time you apply again.
How to Apply for a FinChoice Loan
You can apply for FinChoice loans online. Go to their website and choose either MobiMoney payday loan for an instant loan up to R10,000 to repay over 1-3 months, or a Personal Loan of upto R40,000 to repay over 6-24 months. There’s an online application form dedicated to each product which you have to complete. First you will need to provide the following to get a quote on how much you can borrow:
- Your South African ID number
- Cell number
- Current income after deductions
Once you know how much you can borrow, you can continue with the online application form. For a personal loan you will need to provide:
- Proof of residence
- Proof of income documents (ideally showing a stable income)

FinChoice performs a credit risk assessment and affordability assessment on each of their applicants to ensure they can afford what they’re asking for and will be able to make the monthly instalments. FinChoice won’t grant approval to those who have a high chance of failure to repay the debt on the agreed terms.
Once your application has been approved, expect your money to be transferred to your account within 24 hours. You must be able to submit all required documents by 3:00 PM, though, for this to happen. You’ll receive an SMS to confirm when the money has been deposited successfully into your account.
