NILS (No Interest Loans Scheme)

We believe every student in New Zealand deserves access to the digital technology they need in the classroom and at home. But the cost is out of reach for many schools and families. Along with Good Shepherd NZ we’re here to support you and your school community to access the tools they need.

Good Shepherd NZ offers fair and affordable loans for essential items for New Zealanders on limited incomes. These loans are to help New Zealanders improve their quality of life and are provided on a not for profit basis. They’ll work with you and your families towards creating a 1:1 ratio of device to student.

How it works

Firstly, we talk through what you’ll need to roll out a BYOD programme in your school – including which devices are available, getting parents onboard and understanding the financial options that your school may need. Then we can put you in touch with your local NILS Loan Worker. Your local Loan Worker will work directly with your families who want to apply for a loan and provide financial capability support if needed.

The NILS loans are:

  • Up to $1,500
  • No interest and no fees
  • Repayments up to 12 months
  • You must be eligible for a Community Services Card

To find out more about the lending programme download our overview here or visit goodloans.org.nz

Just get in touch with your Education Specialist and we’ll introduce you to your local NILS Community Loan Worker and explain the range of devices available.

You speak directly with your Loan Worker to find out how the loans work and how to promote the loans to families.
