Bamboo (often termed as Bamboo Loans) is a direct lender that started out their business in 2014. This was initially through www.bamboofinance.co.uk. They have however recently made a switch to trade from the address of www.bambooloans.com. As before, there are 2 products on offer. The first is a standard unsecured loan that is joined by a guarantor loan. This back-up option enables them to target subprime audiences and you can imagine many applicants who are declined being offered the chance of funding if they can find a backing. On this side the available sums are set between £1000 and £8000. The repayment options are 12, 18, 24, 36, 48 and 60 months.
