This ranges from the Qwikloans to Express loans, Carbon, Fido loans and down to Zidisha loans.

Bloomkash Loan Terms, Conditions And Interest Rates
For most people, the loan system operated by Bloomkash may sound too good to be true. However, it is exactly what it is. However, just like any other financial institution, there are some terms and conditions that need to be looked at.
For Bloomkash, the interest rate is charged daily and it varies from between 0.1% daily to 1% daily.
There is a processing fee of 36.5% on every loan accessed via the platform. So if you apply for a loan of GHS 65 for a 91 days term, the processing fee would be equal to GHS 23.7. The interest over the period, however, would be equal to GHS 1.8. So your total repayment amount would be GHS 90.5.
Loan terms on the other hand range between 15 days to 90 days depending on how soon you paid your previous loans.
Finally, loans from Bloomkash are mostly based on the success of previous loans. So, for higher amounts, you should first take smaller amounts and repay them on time so you can qualify for the bigger loans later.
Loans are a reliable source of support in times of emergency. However, for most people, acquiring loan comes at a very huge cost of either processing fee or collateral or several up and down movements.
This makes it a whole lot difficult for those who may need such loans to deal with urgent situations.
In view of this, Bloomkash introduced their online loan system to help people with short term loans from 65 cedis to 1000 cedis in order to help them deal with their problems.
In this article, we looked at the procedure for applying for a Bloomkash loan and the terms and conditions surrounding it.
