Affirm Financial Helping People

What makes us different

Affirm serves people who are financially responsible, but have run into problems and need help re-establishing a solid financial footing. We understand that financial plans can go off track – whether through illness, job loss, or other family circumstances. Your credit rating may fall to the point where you can’t get a credit card from your financial institution.

That’s where we come in. In our eyes, if you’re facing up to the situation and honestly trying to deal with it. And from that starting point, we take an honest and sympathetic look at your circumstances and your resources, and try our best to deliver a financial bridge to a better future.

No, we don’t approve every single application. But most of our clients are people who have had difficulty getting credit from banks or other financial institutions. They’ve faced what you’re facing now. We’ve not only provided the funds they needed, but we’ve done it with sensitivity and respect.

Maybe it’s your turn now.

Responsible lending

Affirm Financial is a responsible lender. We abide by all Provincial and Federal laws pertaining to financial institutions. We pride ourselves on being fair, transparent and responsive.

We believe credit should help you with immediate needs, and we encourage you borrow only what you need. Our credit process is designed to ensure you can afford and can repay in a timely manner. That way, your credit score will improve and you will eventually be able to again borrow from traditional financial institutions  at lower rates and with higher credit limits.

We encourage you to shop the marketplace. See what others are charging. We don’t mind – it only makes our rates and fees look even better!

We also encourage you to seek a second opinion. By all means work with a credit counselor to see what form of credit, and how much credit, is right for you.

Full disclosure at all times

We clearly disclose what interest rates and fees apply to your credit card. There are never any “hidden fees” or charges. All the terms and conditions are spelled our clearly in your Cardholder Agreement, and our customer service representatives are always happy to answer your questions.
