There is a lot of reasons to get a Payday loan like an unexpected hospital bill or a needed car repair. The Bank ensures that these loans are processed instantly to minimize inconvenience, ”the Bank said.
The facility is available to individual CBZ clients and non-CBZ clients are required to transfer their wages to CBZ in order to qualify for the loan. The product is accessible to public servants, uniformed forces and those in the private sector.
The loan is repaid within 30 days at an affordable interest rate.
