Working Capital Loan
Working Capital Loan

One of the hardest parts of running a business is funding it. To help cover everyday expenses, companies can consider taking up a working capital loan.


These are either government-assisted or in-housed bank loans.


How it works:


  1. You receive a lump-sum cash upfront, payable over 3 to 5 years, depending on the loan agreement
  2. Every month, you pay your loan installment via GIRO or fund transfer


Example:


Based on a loan of $100,000, your monthly commitment can be as low as $1933, payable over 5 years. Click here to see a detailed loan schedule.
