Apply These Tricks to Guarantee Getting the EZ Cash Loan

Now let’s consider the steps you should take to improve your chances of securing the loan:

  • Maintain a good credit history. EZ cash loan gives preference to customers whose credit records are barely scarred. 
  • Maintain an active Stanbic IBTC account for one year before you key into the EZ cash loan.
  • Consider your monthly income before you input the amount you wish to loan. This is because Stanbic IBTC will check your monthly income across all your banks. If your Debt-to-income ratio is poor, you would likely not secure a loan for a lump sum. But if you request a reasonable amount that you can repay from your source of income, your loan will be approved. 
  • If you are tendering a payslip as proof of income, ensure it’s your latest payslip. For instance, if you make your application in early June; before payday; the payslip you should tender is that of May. If you make your application in late June, after payday, the payslip you should tender is that of June. This boosts your chances of getting the loan.
