A Save My Bacon mini bad credit loan allows you to borrow between $100 and $600 this is an unsecured short-term loan.

The main difference between a mini loan and a payday loan is that a payday loan needs to be paid back by your next payday.

A mini loan allows you a bit more breathing space as you can choose to split the repayment over 3 terms weekly, monthly, or fortnightly depending on your pay frequency.
