Wonga is here to help with occasional cash flow problems - when you need a short-term cash advance to tide you over for a few days or weeks - but our service shouldn't be used to manage existing debt or as a regular source of ongoing credit. If you're already feeling the strain financially, please be aware that a Wonga loan will only add to your commitments because it must be repaid within a month. Always think carefully before commiting to any form of credit and, if in doubt, seek advice before making any decisions.
