Interest and the principal amount are required to be serviced monthly (preferably linked to salary payment date of the borrower). The rate of interest is linked to the Bank’s Policy Rate and interest is charged on the reducing principal amount. In order to access this facility, the applicant must have an account with the Bank. The loan is arranged through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the borrowers’ employers. The employer only facilitates repayment of the loan by simply deducting the loan repayment amount directly from the employee’s monthly salary and remitting it to the Bank.
