MoneyPal Loan App Review: online loan app in Nigeria

MoneyPal is an online loan service by Zedvance that offers loan amounts from N2,500 to N5,000,000 with repayment periods from 60 days to 24 months at a daily interest rate of 0.5% to 1% and APR from 182.5% to 365%.

The loan is unsecured and requires minimal documentation, which is why the interest rate is very high.

This app has so far gained over 50k downloads on the Google play store with mixed reviews. It uses loan software to collect prospective customers’ information including phone records, banking transaction alerts, and BVN to build the credit score of each borrower.

Because lending decisions are made by the computer, to qualify for higher amounts, be sure to keep good bank transaction messages on your phone and not have outstanding debts with other loan apps!

How to Download APK and get a loan from MoneyPal Loan app

  • Download the MoneyPal Loan App available on the Google Playstore and install it on your Android phone.
  • Register an account with your phone number.
  • Preferably the phone number connected to your BVN as a one-time password will be sent to it for verification.
  • Fill in your basic Know-your-customer KYC information, including your residential address, next of kin and employment details.
  • You will also be required to provide your Biometric verification number BVN.
  • You’ll be charged N30 to bind your ATM card to your account to increase your chances and get a higher loan amount.
  • A one-time password OTP will be sent to your phone to confirm your details.
  • After the submission of your loan application, the software will analyze your credit score and the final result will be shown in the APP.
  • The result should be displayed in less than two minutes and if you qualify for a loan, the loan amount will be disbursed into the bank account in about 5 minutes.
  • Make sure you’re using a good phone with enough memory space as you will be required to take a clear live selfie for identification.

Note that binding your ATM card with N30 does not guarantee that you will get a loan, you still have to pass the credit score check.

The N30 charged to bind your ATM card to your account is refundable, but can take anywhere from 7 to 12 business days for the money to be refunded back to your bank account.

Your BVN is linked to your credit score, so if you have an outstanding loan with other lenders or didn’t pay other lenders as at when due, expect your application to be rejected.

Your credit score is a record of your previous borrowings, how early or late you make your payments, cash transactions going in and out of your bank account among other information.

When you download this app you have to consent to it to get access to your phone book contacts that will serve as your guarantors, SMS to see your banking transaction records, apps on your phone to see how you use other loan apps and other details it uses to build your credit score.

It will be a good experience if you include the above observation please, thanks for the app.”
