The economy as of May 2020 is not looking good. Business owners are bleeding away money, while more and more employees are getting laid off. 

Coupled with the urgency to keep up with the standards of living, borrowing money seems to be one of the few choices left. 

Licensed Moneylenders – Who are they? 

There are several licensed money lenders registered with the Ministry of Law in Singapore. Contrary to popular belief, they are not loan sharks. 

Unlike these Ah Longs, there are restrictions imposed on licensed money lender when it comes to the loan amount, the fees, as well as the interest rates. Nevertheless, there will still be consequences if you don’t pay up on time.

Let’s find out more. 

Tips to consider before engaging a money lender

Ask yourself, is it necessary at all? 

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” – Albert Einstein. 

Remember this: getting more money is not the only solution in many situations. Ask yourself these questions:

What problem am I going to solve with this loan? 

Unless it’s for a critical situation such as life and death, you should reconsider your options.

Are there other alternatives to solve this issue? 

If you are experiencing issues with daily survival, the first place you should check out is the social service office near you. They can help guide you to a suitable government grant. With that being said, do not depend entirely on grants. Get help in your job finding or career planning goals so that you’ll start to take steps to get out of this rut.  

If it’s a business goal and banks have rejected you, be creative with your alternatives. Getting a loan to start a business will add a big dent to your overheads, especially when you are dealing with an interest rate that’s possibly higher than one from a bank. There are many ways you could work around it – Work on your pitch to secure investors or get another temporary job to support your dream.

If your business is suffering as a result of a crisis like Covid-19, there are several business schemes available to help you tie through this period. You may also consider cutting down your expenses. 

Do I have a repayment strategy?

You have to work out how you will pay off these loans. Create a budget plan and do away with unnecessary expenditure. It’s not an enjoyable process considering the number of luxuries you may have to give up.

License and credibility 

The Ministry of Law provides a list of authorised moneylenders locally. If the moneylender you are planning to check out isn’t on the list, do not proceed. 

If you are visiting an outlet, make sure they have a valid license from the Registry of Moneylenders. 

Reputation is another factor that you should take into consideration. Check for customer reviews, as well as their years of operation.

Additionally, be aware that licensed moneylenders DO NOT advertise their services through phone calls or texts. 

Interest rates 

Make a comparison with at least 5-10 different moneylenders. Don’t be fooled by the low-interest rates that some may offer. Check out if there are any hidden costs. 

Flexible payment plan

As with interest rates, make a comparison with at least 5-10 options. Choose a moneylender whose priority is to help you solve your issue instead of one who’s all about making money off your interests. The moneylender should offer you a flexible plan so that you can pay your up your dues and not pile up your debt.   

Check through the paperwork and keep them in a safe place

If you are unsure of the terms in the contract, bring someone knowledgeable along with you. Scrutinise through the agreement and keep them, together with the receipts and bank statements in a safe place. These documents can come in handy during times of dispute. 

What if I can’t pay up on time? 

This issue should not be happening in the first place. You have to work out a firm strategy to pay the moneylender back before signing any agreement. 

However, if there are any sudden unforeseen situations creating a detour in your payment plan, contact your moneylender immediately. Negotiate for an extension or a new repayment plan.

There would usually be an extra fee for this. Yet, this is still much better than having your interests multiply.

The moneylenders may also send in trained debt collectors. The latter may pressure you into paying up, legally. They can come by your home, drop by your office and even stalk your social media account, causing people to know about your financial situation. 

When this happens, do be intimidated by them. Negotiate with these debt collectors for a brand new repayment strategy. Do note that it’s illegal for 5 or more debt collectors coming together to see you. They are also not allowed to use physical or verbal intimidation. If that happens, call the police immediately. 

The moneylender also has the legal right to sue you if you have been continuously skipping on your repayments. If an asset has secured your loan, it may risk repossession.

Lastly, if you have debts amounting to at least $15,000 are not able to repay them, you can consider filing for bankruptcy. However, with that comes other potential social and career problems. Therefore, avoid making bankruptcy an option at all costs.

“Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value

I saw Capital Funds Investment’s good reviews and decided to give it a try. Their staff were professional during the phone call and gave clear advices and inform me the things I have to bring to the office to be assessed. I headed down to the office and was greeted by warm and friendly staffs. They were prompt in answering all my questions and worked out a plan that im comfortable with. They also ensure that I am fully aware of all the terms in the contract.

Very reliable service from them. Most importantly, they were able to help me with debt consolidation with low interest rate! Thank you Capital Funds! Would highly recommend them!”

Review 2

“Had been with them for a few months and hope this review was not too late. Initially wanted to get another loan from this company to pay off another. After their interview, a debt consolidation was proposed with low interest rate and long repayment period . Am glad that i took up their proposal, since my tenure with them. I only need to focus payment to a money lender and I no longer have any cash issue since my tenure with them. Kudos to this wonderful team who’s really out to solve our issue and I highly recommend giving them a visit especially when you are looking for debt consolidation service.”
