As long as you are on Controller and Accountant General’s Departments or other government or private organisations that have partnered with Bayport, you are eligible to apply for a loan with us.
What do I need to get a loan?
It’s simple; all you need is a recent pay slip, any of your national ID’s, a bank statement that shows your income, and two (2) passport sized photographs.
Bayport interest rates appear too high.
Our target to disburse within thirty (30) minutes of application entails the commitment of resources to put together the necessary infrastructure for speedy delivery.
As a non-deposit taking institution that borrows from the banking system and other investors to on-lend to our clientele, our charges have to reflect our cost of borrowing.
Delays in effecting deduction at the employer’s end tend to extend the period of borrowing by up to three (3) months, however, we do not adjust the interest rate charged to the customer to reflect the extra period. This tends to reduce the effective cost of borrowing for the customers.
We waive the requirement for the customer to provide collateral security in respect of loans issued, which is a precondition to borrow from our competitors, especially money lenders.
Our interest rates are fixed for the entire duration of the loan, whereas, banks normally operate a variable interest rate. This provides a saving for our customer during periods of increasing interest rates.
Customers who are unable to meet their loans payment schedule due to terminal ailment or death, do not have their families tasked to pay, compared to other money lenders.
There is a high incidence of over deduction.
Over deduction is a source of worry for Bayport Financial Service because it affects our operation adversely as much as it affects our customers. However, the problem is not exclusive to Bayport Savings and Loans. It affects all our competitors.
Where an over deduction occurs, Bayport Savings and Loans endeavors to effect the refund as quickly as possible as long as the customer is not in arrears. However, the restatement of the outstanding loan balance to reflect the refund becomes difficult and tends to delay completion of repayment by the customer. Bayport Savings and Loans is therefore working with its various employer partners to address the problem permanently.
In a situation where an over deduction has occurred, we recommend that where the customer can afford to, they allow the over deduction to go to offset their loan balance. This will mean early completion of repayment, thus the customer becomes eligible for a new loan earlier than would have been the case.
In line with our objective of mitigating customer inconvenience where over deductions occur, Bayport Savings and Loans pays out refunds in respect of over deductions to our customers even before the amount deducted is released by the employer to us.
In order to further reduce the inconvenience created by over deductions,our Customer Service Department is on standby to deal with all customer complaints and queries.
