When you’re short on funds, have an emergency, or when you have little time and need a loan quickly, Wonga is here for you. Our quick loans are flexible and empower you to manage your immediate financial gaps.
Quick loans are a form of unsecured credit that can be used for short term emergencies. Quick loan applications are typically conducted online and successful applicants can usually have the funds deposited into their bank account on the same day, hence the term ‘quick loan’.
Wonga offers quick loans of up to R4000 for first-time customers for periods lasting up to 3 months with credit paid back in monthly instalments.

It’s recommended that you only apply for a quick loan in a financial emergency, for example when unanticipated bills occur that you have not budgeted for but are essential to resolve as soon as possible.
Our loans are only suitable for use by financially responsible applicants. It is not recommended that you use quick loans to manage your existing debt, if you find yourself relying on quick loans frequently it can be symptomatic of financial problems that need to be resolved without taking out additional Wonga quick loans for short-term relief.
Quick loans are designed for short-term use only. If you need credit for longer than 90 days, it is advisable to procure a different type of longer-term credit.
