What to Expect with a Line of Credit from Fora

  • The annual interest rate for a Line of Credit from Fora starts as low as 19.9%5. You only pay interest on what you draw, not your entire credit limit.
  • If you have an outstanding balance, you will need to make Minimum Payments which are typically due on your pay dates.
  • Each Minimum Payment includes:
    • Interest charged on your outstanding principal balance for each day of your billing cycle; and
    • A contribution towards your principal, based on your income frequency, to help make a dent in your balance.

The exact amount of each Minimum Payment and the corresponding due date will be outlined in your statements.

Minimum Payment Examples

To demonstrate what is included in each Minimum Payment on a Line of Credit from Fora, let’s look at examples of a customer with a bi-weekly income frequency (14 days apart) who has an outstanding principal of $2,000 for two billing cycles.

Example 1: Annual Interest Rate of 46.9%.

Billing Cycle Example Outstanding Principal Balance Principal Contribution (A) Interest (B) Minimum Payment Due (A+B) Remaining Principal Balance
1 $2,000.00 $20.00 $35.98 $55.98 $1,980.00
2 $1,980.00 $19.80 $35.62 $55.42 $1,960.20

Example 2: Annual Interest Rate of 19.9%

Billing Cycle Example Outstanding Principal Balance Principal Contribution (A) Interest (B) Minimum Payment Due (A+B) Remaining Principal Balance
1 $2,000.00 $20.00 $15.27 $35.27 $1,980.00
2 $1,980.00 $19.80 $15.11 $34.91 $1,960.20

Disclaimer: In these examples, we assume the customer makes a draw at the start of a billing cycle, only makes Minimum Payments and no additional draws are requested on their Line of Credit. This example is for illustrative and informational purposes only. The actual Minimum Payment(s) due on your personal Line of Credit will depend on your individual account circumstances and activity.
