Lendela allows users to compare several personalised loan offers based on their credit history. Not only that, Lendela offers flexible financing amounts, fast cash disbursement (within 1 day), and a low minimum income requirement, making it a great option for those that require a personal loan and do not qualify for a bank loan.

What Makes Lendela Stand Out to Borrowers

By offering custom personal loan offers, based on the prospective borrower's profile, Lendela allows individuals to compare the best rates offered by moneylenders in Singapore. While those that would qualify for a bank loan would save money by applying to one of Singapore's top banks, those that are unable to obtain bank loans can ensure that they are getting the best moneylender rates by using Lendela.
