A personal Line of Credit from Fora is an open-end credit product that allows you to make draws, repay and redraw as needed, from your available credit3. If approved, you can access funds up to a specific credit limit.
Credit limits range from $1,000 to $10,000. If your application is approved, your credit limit will be determined based on a number of different factors.
Interest is calculated based on the outstanding principal balance at an annual rate from as low as 19.9%5.
Additionally, there are no origination fees, draw fees, annual fees or late fees! With a Line of Credit from Fora, you only pay interest on the amount of credit you use, not on your approved credit limit. It’s the flexibility in a credit product you have been looking for!
A line of credit is a form of open-end credit that has no fixed duration or term. This means that you can withdraw money from your available credit, up to your approved credit limit.
With payday and installment loans, you receive a single lump-sum of money up front. A payday loan is a traditional short-term loan that you pay back in full on your next pay date, while an installment loan is repaid in installments over time.
The Line of Credit from Fora is currently offered in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. Additional provinces and territories will be operational soon. Check back regularly to see if a Line of Credit from Fora is available in your area.
