People who are willing to take a bank loan can now apply for NIC Asia Bank’s Super Chamatkarik Loan directly from Khalti Digital Wallet.
NIC Asia Bank has come up with three different types of loans i.e. Home, Car, and Business Loan scheme at 8.25 % annual interest rate and loan approval decision within 48 hours. These loans also have the features of swap loans of other banks, no change of interest rate in the first year, and loan processing fee of 0.25%.
With this feature, Khalti users will be able to apply for the loan by just tapping on the Loan icon in Khalti App. Khalti will only collect the applications of the customers of the bank who want to take a loan through the app. The collected applications will be forwarded to NIC Asia Bank for further processing.
