Stanbic Bank Uganda has unveiled attractive offers on unsecured personal loans effectively activating the festive mood among customers, with Christmas just seven weeks away. The promotional offer runs until end of the year.
With interest rates starting from as low as 16% (subject to terms and conditions), customers are being given long repayment-periods of up to 72 months for unsecured advances to salary earners ranging from 10 years for land financing and up to 20 years for home purchases.
“After a tough year that saw many Ugandans spend their savings as they stayed home due to Covid-19, our offer is to really facilitate our customers to celebrate life as they prepare for opportunities in the coming year,” Sam Mwogeza, the Head Consumer and High Net Worth at Stanbic Bank said.
According to bank officials the bank’s rich festive menu offers exciting asset financing deals that can be quickly applied for and granted within minutes, at hugely discounted rates through the bank’s digital and mobile banking platforms as well as branches across the country.
These include land, home improvement or purchase, vehicle and other assets’ financing deals that are available to both current customers with a loan and those without. Customers who do not have pending loan offers, the normal loan process will be followed; this also applies for secured loans such as vehicle, land and home loans. The festive menu also allows top-ups for customers who are eligible based on the time of need for the facility.

Asked how the bank is able to receive and approve loan applications within minutes, Mwogeza said all existing salaried and self-employed customers have been customers have been pre-approved for various credit segments based on different lending parameters.
For non-customers, a quick self-registration online process is available to get them a fully functional bank account with Stanbic Bank after which they gradually become eligible.
