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 an instant loan. 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 data 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 1st loan.
Loans range from ₦1,500 to ₦1m (Nigeria) and Ksh 500 to Ksh 30,000 (Kenya) with repayment terms of up to 64 weeks.
Interest ranges from 1.75% - 30%, with an equivalent monthly interest rate of 1 - 21%. The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) on a Carbon loan ranges from 23 - 60.8%. NO late fees or processing costs.
Example: For a 3-month loan of ₦50,000, Carbon charges 2% a month. With an APR of 24.3%, total repayment amount after 90 days is ₦53,000.
Please do not take a Carbon loan to service long-term debts. Short-term loans are extremely helpful in emergency cases, but can be costly if compared with other types of loans and should be used with care. You can find out more on www.getcarbon.co
