Small, affordable loans for those unexpected bills

Interest rates are comparable to mainstream credit.

Salad Moneys public responsibility oversight body (Prob)

Salad Money has deliberately placed its oversight into the hands of an independent body of experts.
The Public Responsibility Oversight Body (PROB) was set up to make sure that Salad Money does what it set out to in a responsible way. The PROB reports on Salad Money's progress to make sure its loans are affordable; its business practices are fair; and that profit is invested in financial education and reducing the cost of loans. Salad Money is accountable to the PROB and the PROB is accountable to you.
