No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS)
Good Shepherd Microfinance
The No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) provided by Good Shepherd Microfinance is the largest of its kind in Australia. NILS provides no interest loans to families and people on low incomes, giving them the support they need to get back on their feet.
Working with Good Shepherd Microfinance we designed and developed a website to generate client leads and provide prospective clients with information about the loans and how to access them.
Easily Find providers.
We connected the site to the provider database, allowing users to get live location and contact information of their nearest NILS provider. For clients this provides more accurate information and for the NILS team this greatly reduced the amount of manual data entry.
As an additional component to the public facing map we also developed a provider map that allowed Good Shepherd Microfinance to visually see the service areas of each of their 640 providers Australia wide, a resource that they had no access to previously.
Enquire wherever you are.
A beautifully responsive site allows users to find their closest provider and enquire about NILS loans on their device. With a large percentage of clients arriving at the site from mobile devices the site needs to work fluidly across mobile and tablet devices.
Engaging, humanistic design
Visually differentiating the NILS product from traditional bank loans is important to clients.
The design features hand drawn elements, lending an honest, humanistic, community feel to the brand. This look and feel has now been introduced to other branded collateral for both NILS and the Good Shepherd Microfinance brand.
