PRIVACY AND PERMISSIONS
When you download Carbon, we will ask for your permission to scan your financial SMS data and other information in order to verify your identity, creditworthiness, and provide you with the fastest loan in Nigeria. We also use this to help you better understand and improve your finances with our personal finance manager. We take privacy seriously - all data you choose to share with us is encrypted and your personal information will never be shared without your consent.
CREDIT SCORE IMPACT
Failure to pay off any loans taken trigger a notice to the consumer credit reporting agency which would negatively impact an individual’s credit score. Late payments can also affect your ability to borrow in the future, so please ensure timely repayments of obligations.
FEES AND INTEREST
A Carbon loan attracts interest rates starting from as low as 5% monthly on the first loan. It is intended to meet urgent, short-term cash needs. Loans range from ₦1,500 to ₦1m with terms from 4 - 64 weeks. Interest ranges from 2% - 30%, with an equivalent monthly interest rate of 1 - 21%. We also do NOT charge any additional fees - for late repayments or processing costs.
Please do not take a Carbon loan if you intend to service long-term debts. Short-term loans are extremely helpful in emergency cases, but rather expensive if compared with other types of loans and should be used with care.
