FAQ

What is a consumer loan intended for?

You can use a consumer loan to buy household appliances and electronic devices, to hold events and cover other running costs. If you need a moderate amount, a consumer loan is the best solution. 

How can I make repayments?

You can repay the loan in one of the following forms:

Annuity (equal payments).
In this case, the client makes equal monthly payments consisting of a portion of the loan and a portion of the interest.

Differentiated.
In this case, the principal is repaid each time in equal portions and the interest decreases with each payment and is accrued on the outstanding amount.

Mixed.
The client may choose an individual repayment schedule based on the seasonality of cash flows, provided that at least 20% of the contractual loan amount is repaid each year; the interest is payable on a monthly basis.

Detailed information on loan repayments can be found here.

Are there any other fees?

There are no other mandatory fees for loans not secured by the collateral and guarantee.
