How we can help SUPPORT you during this time

and where to find the RIGHT ADVICE for your situation.

Like many New Zealand businesses, The Lending Room is adapting quickly as the impact of COVID-19 continues to affect the country. While ensuring the on-going good health and wellness of our loved ones is on top priority right now, money is still high on our list of concerns.

Around 70% of New Zealanders have had their income affected since the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country which means time to conserve money for a lot of families. Most of us will be saving money by default during the 4-week lockdown period, as eating out and shopping trips are firmly off the list of expenditure!

The Lending Room can help you with a personal loan or debt consolidation loan to help you manage your debts and expenses during this difficult time but there are many things you can do to help your budget.

He waka eke noa – we are all in this together

How we helped Anna save with a debt consolidation


Anna came to us looking for help to consolidate her debts and needed some additional funds for personal expenses. She was working full time but had found herself trapped in the vicious cycle of payday loans. With high repayments a large majority of her weekly income was consumed by these payments and she felt there was no end to it all.

Instantly we could see how a debt consolidation loan would benefit her financial situation. Our team quickly went to work in order to find a solution. That same day we had an approval offer in place.
This new loan required repayments of $80 weekly which gave her an instant saving of $124.62 weekly by consolidating her three existing debts, plus she was left with some cash in hand for her personal expenses.

Needless to say the client was very pleased with the result and so were we – Success!
