What we do
Our portfolio of products is based on building personal relationships with our customers and is split into two divisions: consumer credit and credit cards.
We provide home credit through our Provident Personal Credit and Greenwood Personal Credit businesses, with 10,500 local agents visiting 1.8 million customers (around one in 20 UK households) to issue loans and collect payments every week.
We provide Visa-branded credit cards with limits that are significantly lower than those of mainstream lenders and a high level of contact with customers to help them stay in control.
