Loans & Credit

If you are considering borrowing some money why not have a look at our guide on what to look out for when taking out a loan

As a Parkway Green resident you can access loans from Money Line, Greater Manchester or the Manchester Credit Union. The loans that both the Manchester Credit Union and the Money Line provide are both affordable with flexible payments to suit your budget.

Both provide loans that are cheaper than typical door collected loans (door step providers) and give you more flexible repayment plans. The Manchester Credit Union will consider providing loans to people who have been refused loans from a bank or building society. All applications are made on an individual basis and applications are welcomed from all members of the community.

Manchester Credit Union

  • Provide ‘flexi loans’ to both members and non members

How to Apply;

  • Visit the Manchester Credit Union shop in the Civic Centre – don’t forget to bring your ID
