How to get a loan from XCredit
Follow the steps below for instructions on how to borrow loans from XCredit:
1. Install the app from the Google Play Store
For now, there is no web version of XCredit. To use this service, you have to download and install the Android app.
2. Register an account with XCredit
Open the app and indicate that you are a new user. Create an account by providing your BVN and other personal information.
3. Apply for a loan
Once your account is registered, you can apply for a loan. You will need to exercise patience so that the management can approve your loan request.
Your loan request can be rejected. This can happen if you are yet to pay the debt you borrowed from another loan company, or if your BVN has been associated with fraud in the past.
4. Receive the funds
If your request is accepted, you will receive the money within a short while.
It is advised to pay before/on the due date, as that increases your loan limit. The more consistent you are with payments, the higher the amount of money you can borrow from XCredit.
How much loan can you get from XCredit?
With XCredit, you can take loans within the range of ₦5,000 ~ ₦500,000. However, you will not be able to borrow large amounts because you are a new user. To increase your loan limit, make sure you pay back on the due date.
XCredit interest rate
XCredit charges an interest rate of 12% for any loan you borrow for 180 days.
XCredit loan term
XCredit allows users to borrow money for a period of 91 days ( 3 months) to 180 days (6 months).
Repayment of loan
XCredit requires users to pay back before/on the 180th day, starting from the date the loan was borrowed.
The amount you are to repay is the amount you borrowed plus the interest charges. For example, if you borrowed ₦5,000 from XCredit, you will repay ₦5,000 and an additional ₦600 (12% interest) at the end of your loan term.
Also, you will be sanctioned if your repayment is overdue. If you fail to pay back on the 180th day, each subsequent day attracts an additional interest rate of 2%. Learn more from the official website.
Late payments also lower your loan limit.
