Consumer loans are often called unsecured loans. That means that you don’t have to provide assets as collateral or any form of security as you often do when applying for a mortgage. Many also apply for a consumer loan in order to combine and pay off smaller loans as for example credit card loans where the interest is higher than a consumer loan.
Entercard offer consumer loans through our own brand Re:member and in collaboration with our partners. For more information visit our product pages.

How much can you borrow?
The amount that you can borrow depends on your financial situation. We accept loan applications between 10 000 – 350 000 NOK. However, you should not borrow more than you can handle. Also remember that you must follow the down payment guidelines.
The down payment time for consumer loans is shorter than that of other loans, such as a mortgage loan. The most common down payment plan is between 1-15 years depending on the amount borrowed and the borrowers’ financial situation. You can of course pay back more per month than what the down payment plan states and you can at any time pay back the total amount, without an extra cost.
Since you don’t have to put down any collateral for a consumer loan, the risk for the lender is much higher. As a result the interest on a consumer loan in higher than that of other loans. The normal accruing interest varies from 9-20 percent per year.
How much does it cost?
