What is a Secured Loan?
A secured personal loan is a loan that is secured or made against an asset that you already have, like cash, a car, a business, or a home. Basically, you offer an asset as security for the loan. Secured loans are often used for the purchase of motor vehicles, event loans, home renovations, business loans, equipment purchases, or even to help with refinancing.
At Kontiki Finance Limited we offer Secured Loans for car purchases or other vehicle purchases, plus home renovations or extensions and for financing new equipment. We also work with a range of Fiji’s premier retailers to offer hire purchase agreements.
Why secured loans are appealing?
Secured loans often have lower interest rates as the asset that you have secured the loan against acts as a guarantee for the loan repayments. Of course, in the event of the loan repayments not being made, then the asset that was used as security may be taken in order to repay some or all of the loan.
