Cut out the middle man with Challenor Finance

Personal Loans are divided into two categories. Namely, “short and mid-term loans'', and “long-term loans”.

Which one the loans fall into is related to how much is being borrowed, and the length of the repayment period. As mentioned, with Challenor’s online loans South Africa instant approval the amounts can vary between R2000 and R80 000, and the time given to pay back the loan can be as quick as 3 months and go up to 24 months.

This period runs in proportion to the size of the loan taken out and is also influenced by the client's ability to repay the loans. In contrast, long-term loans offer large amounts and payment periods begin at 24 months spanning to 10 years. This often involves putting up property as collateral. Challenor specialises in the former; that is small online loans. They are more commonly used, easier to access and provide cover for clients’ everyday requirements.

Tips for before obtaining a loan

  1. Find a lender who offers fixed rates - Not all financial institutions will give you fixed interest rates and rates of payment. These factors help to guarantee that you can afford repayments every month and keep on top of your debt. They also mean budgeting is vastly more manageable and simple.
  2. Ensure NCR Registration - Registration with the National Credit Regulator means that the finance provider is above-board, has to adhere to certain standards, and that interest rates are monitored by an independent entity. Safeguard yourself against illegitimate lenders.
  3. No upfront application fees - If you are asked to make a payment before submitting your loan application, then it is a scam. Protect yourself from fake online forms. There should be no upfront fee payable.
  4. Website cons- Unfortunately, there are all sorts of con-men on the web, and you must check the source properly. A lender will have working contact details you can test, and it is best to also follow up on your submission by speaking to an agent.
  5. Do your homework - Research the type of loan that will suit your requirements, purpose, and affordability. That way you can be sure to select an appropriate provider, as some offer limited options that may exclude the right for you.
