Researcher: Rachel Gordon

The researcher is looking to talk to people who have accessed short-term credit products online.

Short-term credit products might include payday loans (such as Wonga), guarantor loans (like Amigo) or doorstep loans (like Provident) accessed online. These products could have been accessed via any digital device, like a smartphone, laptop, PC or tablet. 


The aim of this project is to gain an understanding of how digital devices are changing the credit market and impacting people's everyday lives.

The researchers are interested in hearing about your experiences, which credit products you have used, or attempted to use, and how important digital devices were in helping you access the credit.

Volunteer Criteria

Volunteers must have personal experience of accessing, or attempting to access, short-term credit products online.

Specifically, the researcher is interested in your experience of using payday loans, guarantor loans and/or doorstep loans online.

What will I be asked to do?

Volunteers will be invited to take part in a one-to-one discussion with the researcher. The discussion will last between 45 minutes and one hour.

All discussions will be confidential and anonymised and you will be entitled to receive a report outlining the key findings of the research at the end of the project.

When & where?

The discussion will take place at a time and location that is convenient for you.

The discussions are taking place until the end of April 2017.

Will I get anything for taking part?
