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!

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

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

A great contender for the 7-year personal loans provider

This card is a great contender for the 7-year personal loans lead yet is the relative newcomer on the block. This does not stop them from being very aggressive in Singapore these past few years. Although Bank of China $martLoan’s interest rates are on the high side, Bank of China is generally more lenient than most other banks in Singapore and have a lower minimum annual income.
