Loans offered by Cahoot

One of the many products offered by Cahoot is loans, which are of two types—flexible loan and fixed rate loans. Both types of the loan products are offered for the needs of different customers who come from different walks of life. Flexible loan is suited for people who have variable income and outgoings. Fixed rate loans of suited to people who can provide fixed repayments for the loan. It all depends upon the choice of the customers, and the resources that he or she may have to repay the loan. Fixed rate loan also offers the feature of repaying the loan over a wide range of years, which can be pre-determined by the customer itself.

Flexible loan offers a benefit, as the customers need to pay the loan on the outstanding amount of the loan, and not on the whole amount—this allows to reduce the amount of interest over the life of repayment of the loan, and customers feel happy each time they reduce their repayment amount!
