Say hi to Australia’s 1st interest-free Payment Pause

At Lumi our mission is to help Aussie SMEs grow their businesses by giving them easy access to fast and flexible finance. 

As part of this we are thrilled to announce the launch of our latest product feature Lumi Payment Pause – Australia’s 1st 4-week interest-free loan repayment pause. 

We understand that running your small business and managing loan repayments can be a real juggle. With Lumi Payment Pause you can fast forward your business by pausing your loan repayments and interest for 4 weeks, whenever your business needs it. Which means you get to focus on what matters most, like running your business. 

We designed this feature after consultation with our customers, who expressed they often wanted to make a significant change to their business such as a refurbishment or redesign, but were worried about the cash flow implications of that move.

So, whether you’re looking to renovate, buy discounted stock, hire more staff or simply get your cash flow in check, our flexible small business loans will provide you with the funds and ability to pause repayments including interest. 

This year is one of recovery, and we want to give our customers the confidence they need to make the most of 2021. Unlike payment holidays granted by the big banks during the pandemic for mortgagees, we’re pausing both the interest as well as the repayments when you hit Payment Pause. – CEO & Founder Yanir Yakutiel
