African Bank Quotes and Interests Rates
Quotes and rates vary depending on the type of loan you apply for so, I will explain to you the different characteristics of each of them.
If we talk about a Personal Loan, you can ask between R 2,500 and R 200,000 and, you can choose a flexible repayment term of at least 9 months up to 12. Providing you prefer stability, you can go for a fixed repayment period.
For a Consolidation Loan there isn`t a fixed quote but, you have a top of five accounts to consolidate. Also, the repayment instalments starts in 18 months and goes up to 72 months. This loan provide you with an important benefit: to reduce the number of instalments to pay saving money on interest rates.
And finally, the 15% Loan offers a quote from R 5,000 to R 50,000 and repayment periods between 6 and 18 months. The special feature of this loan is its stability. No matter what happens with the interest rate throughout the time of your loan, the terms will remain the same as stated in the contract. This means that the monthly payments and the interest rate you’ll have to pay won’t increase at any time.
