In parallel with a wide range of traditional types of loans, most banks have now offered overdraft loans. With outstanding benefits such as fast approval, flexible loan limit and simple repayment, overdraft loan is believed to be the suitable “financial savior” for a large number of people.

What is an overdraft loan?

An overdraft loan is an approved amount of money that allows you to use it, over and above the current balance in your account. With an overdraft loan, your bank will earn interest based on the amount of money you have use from your loan.

This form of loan is particularly useful for customers who need money to pay for their daily expenses. At Timo, this product, also known as Fast Cash, is offered to you with a goal of making sure it is a fast and convenient “financial savior”.

2/ Loan limit and interest

  • Loan limit: You could easily get a Fast Cash limit that is 5 times higher than your monthly income, if you have a monthly income of 20 million VND. To meet different customer needs, Timo Fast Cash varies from 10 to 100 millions VND.
  • Competitive interest rate: Although the interest rate for overdraft loans can be higher than interest rates for other loan types, the interest rate for overdraft loans is only calculated based on the actual outstanding overdraft balance and the number of days you have used the loan for. You can easily calculate your loan interest with the following formula:

Your monthly overdraft interest = (Total actual outstanding overdraft balance x Interest rate x Actual number of days the loan is used) / 365

Example: Your issued bank’s interest rate for overdraft loans is 9%. Your actual outstanding overdraft balance (the amount you used from your overdraft loan limit) is 5.000.000 VND and has been used by you for the past 14 days. If this is the case, the amount of interest you would have to pay is equivalent to:
Interest = (5.000.000 x 9% x 14) / 365 = 17.260 VND
