Most people find themselves very intimidated by banks, standing in long ques and having to go through stringent security measures. Previously if you needed to get a cash loan you would have no other choice but to go to the bank, luckily since the internet has become so well used you can apply online for a loan as well as make use of several loan companies operating online.
There a number of different types of cash loans available and in most cases the determining factor between the loans is the amount of money required. Payday loans are very short term cash loans that you can take out during the month that will be paid back at the end of the month when your salary is deposited. Personal loans are used for larger amounts of money that will be paid back over a longer period of time and are divided into two categories. Fixed term personal loans are repayable over a predetermined time period and once the money has been repaid it cannot be lent again, however with a revolving personal loans you will be able to withdraw a certain amount of the money repaid already at regular intervals.
In order to find the best deal on a personal loan you should consider all the factors involved these include the loan term, the interest rate offered as well as the initiation fees charged. Initiation fees are preset by certain banks and can be as high as a thousand rand, for a short term personal loan of a few thousand rand paying an additional thousand rand is not a good financial plan. Luckily under the National Credit Act you as the consumer have the right to apply for the loan, once the loan has been approved the bank needs to provide you with an obligation free pre-agreement which you can still decline if the interest rate or banking fees are too high.
You should be very careful of using a cash loan service that is not a registered credit provider as they usually charge very high interest rates and can be regarded as loan sharks.
