Doorstep loans are short-term loans that aim to fund your emergency. These loans mainly target the unemployed, the disabled and retired people. Of course, you need to have a regular source of income to borrow money, but a few lenders like Big Loan Lender also approved loan applications of the unemployed. The maximum amount you can borrow with doorstep loans for unemployed is £2,500. The lender will decide the disbursal limit after considering your income statement.
