Smarterbuys offers tenants the option for an affordable weekly plan for goods. This is a local investment model – with the funders creating a loan fund to support responsible and affordable borrowing for essential items over a two year purchase hire agreement.
Prices are much lower than options like high interest stores, payday loans or loan sharks, and there are discounts on some household items.
Smarterbuys is led by Northwards and is delivered and funded by One Manchester, New Charter Homes, Northwards and Salix Homes for the benefit of their tenants.
Other housing providers are able to join and promote the benefits to their tenants. Contact Tracy Langton at Northwards on 0161 720 5886 for more information.
