When consolidating debt, your qualifying accounts are reduced into one single monthly payment at a fixed interest rate, freeing up cash. A Consolidation Loan is designed to simplify your finances, so instead of having several lending and credit accounts to manage, you’ll have just one. DirectAxis handles all the admin of settling your accounts for you. You may also qualify for further monies.

How will a consolidation loan improve my cash flow?
When consolidating debt, your monthly repayment of the qualifying credit will be lower than you are currently paying. Most South Africans who have consolidated their accounts with DirectAxis increased their cash flow between R1 000 and R1 500 every month.
When should I consider consolidating debts?
If you’re left with very little cash each month after all your qualifying lending and credit accounts have been paid, consolidating debt can be helpful. It’s a financial tool that’s used by businesses and many financially savvy people to simplify their financial affairs, save on administrative costs and free up cash. It's especially helpful in tough economic times.
How will DirectAxis settle my debts?
We’ll let you know for how much your accounts will be settled and will handle the settlement on your behalf. It's your responsibility and will be in your best interest not to re-open or continue to use these accounts.
Does debt consolidation affect my credit score?
Debt consolidation stands to benefit your credit score since you’re less likely to miss the repayment of a single loan instead of many individual accounts. However, debt consolidation is only the first step to improving your financial health. The next step is to improve your credit score rating. A poor credit score will negatively impact your chances of getting financial assistance in the future, making it difficult to rent or buy a home, take out a loan or even secure vehicle finance.
