Most of the Singapore banks target mainly on the well paid employees for a personalloan, while the people drawing less income are often desperate. Many traditional micro financing institutions may cover low income sector of people, yet with a higher rate of interest. However, some banks in Singapore like Citibank offer instant personal loans for the people with low income because the emergency expenses like medical bills, weddings, repairs, renovation, etc., happen even to them.
Apart from the low income generators, the small businessmen experience unpredictable payments from clients. Although the income is certain, the time or the amount may be unknown. Similarly, perhaps the bonus amount is unknown for the employees and under such indecisive situations, the Singaporeans can benefit from the Citibank Singapore Ready Credit Scheme. The new Citibank customers can take advantage of 4.83% per annum interest rate for the loan for 3 years.
Singaporeans with the annual income as low as S$30,000 (S$42,000 for expatriates) can avail instant loan from the Citibank Singapore Ready Credit Scheme. Further, 4 times the monthly income can be availed as the credit line. Besides offering an instant loan approval within one hour of time, the interest rate is nominal and it decreases as the tenure increases.
Around the world, 1% cash discount can be availed on the retail purchases by using the Citibank Ready Credit Card. Moreover, online fund transfer and balance transfer (at a nominal interest rate) facilities are also allowed.
