Search for affordable, competitive loans without harming your credit score
How hard searches affect your credit score
Every time you make a full application for a loan direct with a lender, they’ll run a “full credit search” on you. The problem with this is that full searches leave a footprint on your credit report for all other lenders to see. If a lender sees a lot of full searches on your report carried out within a short space of time, it may actually reduce your credit score. So, the more lenders you apply to direct within a short space of time, the less likely you are to find the loan that you need.
Why Growing Power uses soft searches
When we first contact the lenders on our panel most likely to offer you a loan based on the information you give us on your application form, they’ll only perform soft searches. Other lenders aren’t able to see soft searches on your report and your credit score will be completely unaffected by soft searches. This means that you can search as many times as you like with Growing Power.

How does Growing Power find me an affordable and competitive loan?
Have you been turned down for a loan by a traditional lender because you’ve had some financial problems in the past? If so, you should consider applying for your next loan through Growing Power. Growing Power works with modern and more open-minded lenders meaning that eight out of ten people who apply through us find the loan that they need.
You can test out the technology we’ve developed to find you a loan for free to see for yourself how our system works before you even apply.
How? Just enter a few details about yourself into our FastCheck tool. Within 60 seconds, we’ll let you know what your chances are of being approved for the loan you want to apply for. If FastCheck comes back to you with a positive result, you can choose to continue with your application by telling us how much you want to borrow, how long you’d like to repay your loan, your income, and your monthly outgoings.
We’ll then send your details to the lenders on our panel who offer the type of loan you want. At this point, they’ll run a soft search on you. Other lenders can’t see soft searches on your report and they don’t affect your credit score.
Once our selected lenders have run their searches on you, we’ll then automatically direct you to the website of the lender most likely to offer you an affordable and competitive loan. When you’re there, simply fill out the form and, if they approve your loan, the money will be sent to your chosen bank account within as little as 10 minutes*.
All of the lenders on our panel are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Please be careful before applying to a company advertising a no credit check loan because no credit check loans are not authorised by the FCA.

How does Growing Power know
which lender to match me with?
Every time we welcome a new lender onto our panel, we first ask them what type of loan they like to make and what type of borrower they feel most comfortable lending to. This means that our computer is able to match you to the lenders most likely to work with you within just a few seconds when you fill in our application form.
We’ve designed our system to be as quick and easy-to-use as possible for borrowers. We understand that, in many cases, you need the money in a hurry to cover an unexpected bill or other type of financial emergency.
When you apply through Growing Power, we will only ever send your details to the lenders who offer the type of loan you are looking for.
