We are different because we treat you like a person and we care about helping you in your time of need. We want to help you, not ourselves and we strive to always put your needs first.

Our history

Our company was established in 2000 by two founders who had over 10 years of experience in the financial field.

They wanted to provide a financial solution to those clients that were unable to secure a bad credit loan via the conventional methods.

121 Finance was designed to help everyday New Zealand citizens that needed a bit of extra cash for whatever reason.

121 Finance Services

121 Finance is a loan finding service. By applying for a loan through our service you will have access to multiple lenders and therefore multiple bad credit loans with only one loan application.

By applying to multiple lenders at the same time you have a better chance of having your loan application being approved. You can save money because you have a choice among lenders and you can choose the one that best suits your requirements.

121 Finance - it’s what we do differently

What makes us different is that once you have applied initially via our website or via the telephone, we will send a mobile consultant to come and see you at your home or workplace at your convenience to guide you through the rest of the quick loan process.

121 Finance bad credit loans

Having bad credit can be challenging especially when you need a loan. 121 Finance understands that bad credit happens to good people so we don’t judge you based solely on your credit score and take into account your entire financial situation including employment history and expenses.

You can still apply for a bad credit or blacklisted loan if you have had your loan application declined for the following reasons:

  • Former bankruptcy
  • If you are self-employed
  • Previous Baycorp credit issues
  • If you are receiving benefits such as WINZ or IRD income
  • If you have had your loan application declined by the bank
  • If you have payday loans in arrears or an erratic payment history

We will do everything we can to get you the best loan to suit your needs.

121 Finance - Secured bad credit loans

Another option for those clients with a bad credit score is to apply for a secured bad credit personal loan. If you have a bad credit history some lenders will still lend you money if you provide some sort of security against the loan this is known as collateral.

You can use your fully paid for house or car as collateral against the loan. Apply for a loan of up to $1000,00 the amount that you qualify for will depend on how much money your collateral is valued at. The main disadvantage of a secured loan is the risk involved. If you are unable to repay the loan, then you will lose your collateral and be left even worse off than before.

121 Finance freedom loan

A freedom loan was designed to give you the freedom you need from your financial burdens. This loan works by using your property to secure a loan of up to $20,000. The instant cash loans are available as either 2% or 5% freedom loans and are granted without your property needs to be evaluated.

Other ways of applying for a loan

If you are having problems having your loan application approved, you should think about using a joint application to apply. Ask a trusted family member or friend to co-sign on the loan with you, this will allow the lender to take the other person’s credit history into account and your loan application has more chance of being approved.

If you don’t pay back the loan then the co-signer will be held responsible to make sure that you don’t affect their credit report by not making payments or making late payments.
