Finance company has a heart

On the 14th May 2018 Nobilo Finance made its first charitable donation of many, to Plunket NZ. As part of the new website release and founding principles of the company, Sam Nobilo is working towards giving back to local communities. $25 of every settled loan is donated to a charity of the client’s choice. Nobilo Finance has 3 default charities, SPCA Auckland, Hospice and Child Cancer foundation. But if the client prefers another charity – they can choose them instead.

When searching through what additional services their competitors offer, Nobilo Finance discovered that the finance industry (apart from main banks) do not openly donate to charity or give back to the local community. They are hoping that by making this campaign public and bringing attention to it the practice of giving back and helping those in need will become a permanent practice.

New Zealand has a multitude of car loan companies, business loan suppliers and many other lenders - imagine if it became normal for a very small portion of every establishment fee to go towards helping others? A loan is a massive decision for your average Kiwi and essential when buying big ticket items such as a new car, boat, house or a business buying a new truck. Just imagine the good the finance industry could do supporting causes that probably affect most of their employees in one way or another.
