Additional Comments
Loan amounts and interest rates different for wholesale. The product is structured in a way that the client pays for one installment upfront. This is why the first installment is almost immediately after disbursement and since the policy acts as the security, the installment caters for the period between lodging the claim to insurance and payment in case of default.
