Unsecured loanAn unsecured loan is a convenient way of financing both large and small purchases. A loan without collateral also gives security if something unexpected happens.
Apply for loan with or without collateral
Life’s full of situations where you may need a loan or financing. An unsecured loan is suited to financing purchases when you have a well-founded need for a loan but don’t have collateral or guarantors. For example, you can replace a suddenly broken household appliance or television using an unsecured loan or even finance a small redecoration.
An unsecured loan is a reliable financing method also when you’re making some long-considered purchases. Financing a car or an outdoor deck without collateral can be sensible, as loan repayment will adapt to your life situation, if needed. In addition, an unsecured loan may make better options available to you – and bring more opportunities.
Apply for unsecured loan with the bank without collateral or guarantors
You can apply for an unsecured loan with OP conveniently online. Select between two different unsecured loan alternatives, Special Consumer Credit and Flexible Consumer Credit. Special Consumer Credit is an unsecured loan drawn down at once that can be applied from 2,000 euros up to 15,000 euros based on your needs and repayment capacity.
If you’d prefer a revolving consumer credit, apply for Flexible Consumer Credit. It’s ideal for financing small purchases. You can apply for Flexible Consumer Credit from 2,000 euros up to 8,500 euros.
To qualify for Special Consumer Credit or Flexible Consumer Credit, you must be a customer with OP. You can apply for a loan at op.fi or on OP-mobile if you have OP’s user ID.

What’s the interest rate on unsecured loans?
In comparing unsecured loans, pay special attention to the total costs of the different loan alternatives. The loan costs of unsecured loans consist of the interest rate, expenses and other charges and fees.
When applying for a loan without collateral, make sure that the loan costs have been specified clearly. Loan costs can be compared reliably on the basis of effective interest rate and total costs.
Special Consumer Credit is a one-off loan: the effective interest rate for a 7,000-euro loan with a 5-year payback period would be 9.58% if the credit interest rate were the 3-month Euribor + 7.95% (7.4% in September 2021) and the loan servicing fee 6 euros per month.
The estimated total amount payable would be 8,755.09 euros. This calculation is based on the assumption that the loan is drawn down in a lump sum and the loan interest and charges and fees remain unchanged throughout the loan term. It also assumes that the loan is repaid in monthly instalments of 146 euros all the way to the final instalment.

Flexible Consumer Credit is a revolving credit whose effective interest rate for 2,000 euros is 14.75% when the loan interest rate is a 3-month Euribor + 7.95 percentage points (7.4% in January 2021) and a six-euro loan servicing fee per month. The estimated total amount payable would be 2,152.91 euros. This calculation is based on the assumption that the entire loan is drawn down and that the interest rate and charges and fees remain unchanged throughout the loan term. It is also assumed that the loan is repaid in the monthly minimum repayments of 179.70 euros, resulting in a loan period of 12 months.
