He took out the loan in 2013 and now owes African Bank around R4,500. You must meet the following requirements to get personal credit: Your boss would give to her customer lists, and she would make calls to ask people if they want a new loan or to increase their existing loan.

For this product, the initial interest rate is set at 15%. If you get the 15% loan, rest assured, because the interest rate is at a lower rate.
