Preserve and grow your savings
If you could use some extra cash, it’s a cheaper way to borrow without touching your hard-earned savings. You’ll still have the security of knowing your savings are there to draw on for the future if you need them, all while adding to your savings as you repay your loan. Co-op Credit Union Members must save a minimum of £10 per month.
We understand that sometimes things change, so our Share-Secured Loan gives you full flexibility to use all or part of your savings at any time to pay off the loan, with no early repayment fees or penalties.
With no credit checks, you can benefit from our fastest loan approval time.
What you need to know
Savings to the value of the loan balance must stay for the remaining duration of the loan. Savings above the loan balance will become available again as you repay.
Share Secured Loans are available up to the value of your savings, up to a maximum of £50,000.

Typical Example – borrowing for a new car
Jenny has £10,000 in her Co-op Credit Union savings account.
She wants to buy a new car but would prefer to keep her savings tucked away rather than spend them.
She can borrow up to £10,000 at our special share-secured loan rate of 4.9% APR, using her savings as security for the loan.
As Jenny repays the loan, she can access her savings above the remaining balance of the loan.
She can also choose to use her savings at any time to repay the remaining balance on the loan. E.g. with £5,000 left to repay on her loan, she could use £5,000 of her savings to clear the loan. She would still have £5,000 left of her original savings, plus any extra savings she has built up during the repayment period.
