How do I qualify for the EZ Cash Loan?
The eligibility criteria for EZ Cash loan is actually quite basic, you should have Stanbic IBTC bank account for obvious reasons, your account should have been active for at least a year before the date you applied for the loan, you must be older than 18 years old and younger than 60 years old, your account must be clean, that is you shouldn’t have any dud-cheque (bounced cheque) complaint on your account.
Here are these criteria further explained:
Your account must be a Stanbic IBTC current account: the bank uses your transaction history to calculate the loan limit you would be eligible for. More transactions on your account will qualify you for higher limits. Or better still, if your account is a salary account, the bank can more accurately determine your income and offer you the best loan you can repay easily.
Your account must be at least a year old from the date of opening: this will lend some credibility to your account history, and it will also assure the bank that you’re not just there to take their money and disappear.
You must be between 18 years old and 59 years old: this is considered as the working age group and the age you’re mostly likely to earn your own money. If you’re under the age of 18, you’re most likely still living with your parents and don’t have a source of income yet. Similarly, if you’re 59 and above you probably would have retired and not have a regular day job.
You must have a clean dud-cheque (bounced cheque) record: this would prove your integrity, having a clean record that shows that you’ve never committed fraud before is a good indicator that you will not commit fraud in the future
Your credit reports (CRMS & CRC) must be marked as clean: with the introduction of BVN, the credits of Nigerians can now be viewed and evaluated more easily, a clean credit report means you do not have any outstanding loan that you haven’t paid with any lender on your BVN.
