Whenever you take a loan you sign a promissory note (a legally binding document) agreeing to pay off your loan within a specified period of time.
The maximum period for most loans is 5 years, however some special rate loans such as oil, holiday and Christmas have to be completed within a shorter period.
We always recommend that Member’s complete their loan as quickly as possible in order to minimise the amount of interest they pay.
