    Not many! and if they aren't through a bank, you would end up paying a ridiculous amount of interest.
    You could try to get a loan through a bank if you have someone to go guarantor for you.

    How much are you wanting to loan?
    NAB do a low interest not for profit "StepUP" loan for families on Centrelink benfits or individuals on Youth allowance for up to $3000. More info here

    When I tried for a loan in early February, the banks told me according to their computer systems I didn't even receive enough money from centrelink to feed, clothe and house myself plus two kids without adding in bills and loan repayments.

    All of them said there was no point even putting the application through.

    I hope you get somewhere with it :-)

    I was going to suggest this or the Nils loans. They are similar to the StepUp loan.
