How do you unlock the Borrow feature within Cash App?

Money management can be difficult, and sometimes unforeseen expenses come up that you're not prepared for. Thanks to the folks over at Cash App, tapping into a little extra cash when you need it most is easier than ever. The company's new Borrow feature empowers users to borrow up to $200 through the app. Simply tap the home screen, navigate to the "Banking" header, and then click the new "Borrow" option.

Borrowers will have up to four weeks to repay the loan with an interest rate of 5% flat for that duration. If the term exceeds four weeks of repayment, Cash App tacks on an additional 1.25% late fee each week. The service will lend out anywhere from $20 to $200 at once and is stipulated to be for personal and/or household purposes, not as an education loan.

Those looking to make use of the new feature simply need to download Cash App, create an account, and apply for their very own small loan.
