Doorstep loans are also known as home collection loans and home credit loans. They are a type of personal loan and, as the name suggests, they are delivered to your home. Agents from the lenders call round to your house to deliver the loans in cash or vouchers and to collect repayments.
Some larger doorstep loan companies such as Provident, Greenwoods and Morses Club operate across the UK and Ireland. There are also lots of smaller regional doorstep lenders.
