Covid-19 Personal Loan from 6 Banks @ <10% Interest

Covid-19 Personal Loans

The corona pandemic has bruised India badly especially on the economic front. The shutting down of public life and a partially restricted range of services offered resulted in reduced expenditure. Many industries, including retail, hotel, travel and catering, are particularly affected by the effects of the pandemic. Indians have started facing the heat and the need for instant money has arised more than before.

Unemployment figures will inevitably rise as well, which not only represents a major loss at the individual level, but also puts an additional burden on the economy.

This is the reason why financial institutions in India have launched Covid-19 personal loan schemes to deal with emergency money requirements for their customers.
