MoneySmart lists Personal Loan products that range between a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 7 years. The effective interest rate (EIR) of loan products on our site range from 8.5% p.a. to up to 20.0% p.a. The EIR of your loan will be dependent on the loan you apply for as well as your personal financial needs.
