SureCredit is a Naira cash loan app that provides micro loans for emergencies to Nigerians.
With just your BVN and an ID card, you can get a cash limit of up to #100k sent to your bank account within minutes. You do need to have a good credit score, and a good SMS banking record on your phone to qualify for higher amounts.
This loan app has so far gained over 100k downloads on the Google play store with mixed reviews. It uses loan software to collect prospective customers’ information including phone records, banking transaction alerts, and BVN to build each borrower’s credit score.
Because of their minimal documentation and no collateral requirement, online loans are very expensive with high-interest rates. They should not be taken to fund one’s lifestyle but rather should only be used for emergency needs.

What other borrowers are saying about SureCredit loan app
These reviews are from users on the Google play store. Most customers complained about hidden charges they were charged while applying for the loan. Most of the charges are not upfront, you can apply for an amount and a lower amount will be disbursed to your bank account with the balance calculated as interest.
Olagunju Olusola wrote, “They credited me without my approval. I tried to loan 10,000 but I was credited 6500 without approving the payment. They still added another #468.23 to the repayment making 10,468. The interest rate and the deduction they made do not tally. I tried calling their customer service but they refused to pick it up. In other words, this loan app is a complete scam. This is a total disclaimer.”
Edun Gold wrote, “Everything about sure credit is a scam, I was told I couldn’t borrow more than #10,000, but since I needed more than that I ignore it before am done I was credited with #6,500 and I called the customer service that I don’t need the money and I want to pay it back, she told me to click on repayment within a second #10,497 was deducted from my account and I called the customer service, but since then they don’t pick my calls. Please sure credit kindly return my money I needed money badly.”
Haliru Abubakar wrote, “The worst among them. They don’t give options for you to accept their offer or not. The moment you create the profile, they go ahead and credit your account with whatever they decided and tell you what to pay and when to pay. That’s scamming cleverly so people should avoid this app.”
