  • Equity Financing
  • You can use an unencumbered asset as security to borrow funds for your business needs. We can lend up 80% the value of the asset to consolidate debts or finance working capital needs.

    Equity financing would require a registered mortgage over the proposed asset for which legal fees would be incurred.

Down Payment
Your down payment would depend on the type and face value of the vehicle that you need and the predetermined period of the loan agreement.

  • Preferred option: Monthly ACH payments directly from an account in your name at a local Commercial Bank. A template of the ACH authorisation form is attached in the next section tab.
  • Alternate option: At the discretion of the bank, it may be possible to make your monthly payment through any of the branches island wide on the mutually pre-agreed date of each month given on your loan.
  • Payee option: Monthly instalment payments can be made as a bill payment or payee option through online banking platforms of a local commercial bank. Client can inquire how this can be facilitated should they prefer this option of repayment.
