WHAT IS THE “IT MAKES SENSE LOAN”?
The scheme is open to anyone to apply who is over 18 years of age, who is in receipt of social welfare and who qualifies for deductions to be made through the Household Budget Scheme.

The loan can be for any purpose including to repay an outstanding debt.
The minimum loan amount is €100 and the maximum amount which can be borrowed is €2,000. Loan repayments for the IT MAKES SENSE loan are paid via deductions from the borrower’s social welfare via the Household Budget Scheme. The maximum deduction allowed under the Household Budget Scheme is 25% of total applicable social welfare payments.The minimum loan period is one month and the maximum period is 2 years.
To apply, simply bring two recent social welfare slips (within the previous four weeks) to Malahide Credit Union and you can apply on the spot.
