In the recent past, getting a payday loan from a commercial bank or other money lending institutions required a lot of paperwork and bureaucracy with the availability of collateral and guarantor.

The emergence of fintech companies changed the landscape of how lenders offered loans in Nigeria. With the help of mobile technology, fintech companies were able to disburse loans in minutes with no paperwork or guarantor. It led to fast exponential growth in the credit industry with the Credit Bureau of Nigeria and the administration of Bank Verification Number (BVN) playing significant roles respectively (Dial *5650# to check BVN if you no longer have your details).

In a bid to compete with financial technology companies, Nigerian commercial banks are equally launching quick and accessible payday loan platforms.

In contrast to the old practice of granting loans with high-interest rate loans with loads of paperwork and a list of guarantors, among others, commercial banks now provide quick loans. One of the significant ways they offer these loans is through salary advances in fast and straightforward ways. They termed these payday loans.

What is a Payday Loan?

A Payday Loan is an amount of money lent at an agreed interest rate, and the repayment is expected when the borrower receives his next salary.
