Credit Products Overview
The loan amount ranges from $500 and $2600 and varies from state to state. The specific amount that applies to you as an individual in your state can be obtained on the loan cost and terms page of their website. The loan term ranges between 4 to 30 months depending on the state you reside. It means you can pay back within 4 – 30 months based on your agreement upon application. Upon approval, you are funded within one to two business days depending on the time the application was submitted and approved. The total cost of the loan including the interest on the loan can be calculated on the loan cost and terms page on their site, but for the first time customers, the APR typically ranges between 170% to 349%. What the loan will cost you in total is dependent on your state of residence, your loan history or prior credit, and the amount you borrow.

Lines Of Credit
This is another type of credit that Jora Credit offers but unlike the installment loan where the borrower’s account is fully funded with the amount, in a line of credit, once approved, the borrower can access any portion of the credit approved, up to a maximum of the amount approved. The line of credit is more flexible and generally more suitable for people with varying borrowing needs compared to the installment loan. The interest on a line of credit is dynamic in the sense that any amount on the loan you do not withdraw does not incur interest. The rates are fixed and depend on your state of residence, but you only pay the interest on the amount you withdraw.
Like in the case of installment loans, Jora Credit has a calculator to help you figure in advance what the loan will cost you throughout its lifetime. Similarly, you can use the calculator to figure out what the line of credit will cost you. This information can be found on the “what it costs” page.
States Serviced: Kansas (KS), Tennessee (TN)
Eligibility: Eligibility for a line of credit is basically the same as for the installment loans.
Repayment fees and Hidden Charges
Jora Credit will not charge you any non-sufficient funds (NSF) fees, late fees, or prepayment penalties but in the cases of late payments or where you fail to make an amount you will incur additional interests and may also incur extra finance charges.
The Cost of the Loan
Jora Credit clearly states on their website that the loans they offer are expensive forms of credit and want the borrowers should make an informed decision about whether the financing is a right option for them. This, of course, is due to the fact that the APRs on the loans are high.
For First-time borrowers, the loan amounts are usually between $500 and $2,600 and the APRs range from 170% to 349%.
For an example of what this translates to in monetary terms, using an example calculation on their website, in Missouri, if you got a $2,000 installment loan, you would be required to pay $179.54 bi-weekly for two years. With an APR of 230%, this means $6,618.50 of interests. This is a total of 48 installments after which the loan will be paid in full.
The total cost of credit also depends on the state you reside in, the loan amount you borrow, your prior credit or loan history.
Approval and Funding

If your loan is signed and submitted after 10:30 am your loan will be funded on the next business day. This is for loans that are to be funded electronically.

For Lines of Credit, excluding on bank holidays, if your Cash Advance request is submitted before 10:30 am Central Time on Monday through Friday, you will get funded on the same day of approval and should have your funds in your account by 5 pm your local time. However, if you do not see the funds in your account, you need to get in touch with your bank to check when the funds will be available for use. If your loan agreement is signed and submitted after 10:30 am you will be funded on the next business day. This is for loans that are to be funded electronically. For loans that are made by paper check, it can take between 7 to 10 business days as they are sent by mail.
