MWALIMU SACCO LOANS
Unlike banks, SACCOS do not have any hidden charges that make loans expensive in the long run.
Some of these hidden bank charges include:
1. Insurance fee
2. Account maintenance commission
3. Accrued interest charges
4. Appraisal or processing fee
5. Pre-mature loan clearance charges
6. Late remittance charges
Besides this, banks have yearly reappraisals for interest rates.
This means that the interest rates will change throughout the loan’s lifespan.
If the interests in the money market are raised, the interest rates will be revised upwards without informing the loanee.
SACCO loans are affordable as they only attract monthly charges.
