FAQ

On average, initial approval of a Personal credit application can be done from 10 minutes to 1 day, depending on the bank. Final approval takes on average from 24 hours to 5 days. You just need to make sure your documents are completed when you submit them.

Credit funds can be issued immediately after the application is approved or 1-3 banking days after a successful phone check.

You do not require any collateral or guarantor to apply for a Personal loan.

No, you don’t need to report money spent. You can use the money for a variety of personal needs, such as training, hospitalization, car upgrades, and paying bills.

The longest loan period is 25 years.

Since this type of loan is associated with large amounts of money and a large volume of documents, the term for making a decision by the Bank depends on two stages of verification. First, the Bank will check your solvency, this stage takes no more than 5 working days on average. Then the Bank will need to check the documents for the land or property you are buying, as well as make an assessment of it.

There is no single solution. If you need the lowest monthly payment, then take loan for the maximum possible period. If you are not sure that you will have a consistently high income, then take as little time as possible.

The Bank grants such a loan only to employees of accredited enterprises.

The amount of a Salary loan ranges from PhP10,000 to PhP 1,000,000.

The maximum loan amount depends on your income and loan term. According to Philippine law, paying a loan cannot exceed 30% of income.

No, not required for collateral.
