If I were to borrow money from the bank how will this work out?

So I've been wondering, how does interest in banks work? I don't really get it much, and I've been struggling to figure out how to, can someone please help explain the concept to me? Me and my wife have been planning to buy a car so that we could have a better mean of transportation and we thought we could borrow from the bank on a loan for us to be able to afford a brand new car, so if you have the time please help us

    Well whenever you borrow or loan from the bank there will be given a limit to that loan and when you should pay for that specific loan, ranging from months to even a year, but the inability of you being able to pay at the due date will result in a higher amount of interest the following month compared to your payment dues during the deadline. Everytime you will decide to borrow from the bank there will always be an interest in general and you will have to pay for it with an added amount next time around. Hope I helped goodluck in affording that new car!

    OCBC ExtraCash Loan / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    The OCBC ExtraCash Loan is a true personal loan as it allows you to borrow up to 6X your monthly salary. However, I must warn that the interest rate is kinda high. If you don’t require that much money, I recommend that you consider the OCBC Cash-on-Instalments loan which is slightly cheaper. However currently with OCBC personal loan, you can get a MoneySmart exclusive rate of 3.5% (7.27% p.a.) for new loan customers with only 1% processing fee. For existing loan customers, you pay an interest of 4.7% p.a. (EIR 9.46% p.a.).

    UOB Personal Loan / United Overseas Bank

    To apply for a UOB Personal Loan, you’ll need either a UOB CashPlus account or UOB credit card as UOB draws from your credit card limit. If you’re new to UOB, you can apply for a credit card and personal loan at the same time but note that terms & conditions like the fee schedule of the credit card will also apply to your UOB Personal Loan. UOB bank is one of the few banks that provide instant approval for personal loans for submissions between 7am to 8pm by new UOB customers.

    Sign up for CreditAble in order to cash your credit line using the Maybank CreditAble Term Loan

    Maybank Personal Loan / Maybank Singapore

    Maybank does not exactly offer a proper personal loan in itself but its term loan is linked to its personal credit line product. You just need to sign up for CreditAble in order to cash your credit line using the Maybank CreditAble Term Loan but note the terms & conditions and annual fee however. In my personal opinion, the loan amount is small while the interest is high, so it may be best to avoid this one.

    DBS personal loans are based on either your credit card or personal line of credit

    DBS Personal Loan / DBS Bank

    DBS personal loans are based on either your credit card or personal line of credit. Thus if you have DBS credit card or DBS Cashline and a DBS deposit account, you can apply through internet banking and get your loan processed immediately and credited instantly into your account. However if you don’t have a DBS credit card you can still get this loan, but you will have to furnish your income documents and obviously you won’t get the funds right away
