Can loan money be used for damage compensation?

My family spent the weekend in the National Museum of Singapore. As we stroll, my children ran and played inside where there is a vintage vase that they accidentally broke which costs a lot. I don't have that lot of cash in hand. I am hoping and wondering if I could repay the damage through my loan.

    An incident like this usually happens and as a museum goer, you are not obliged to pay the damage. You can report what had happened to the museum attendant and they will let you leave. After the incident report, an insurance company will send a representative to inspect the workplace and evaluate the damage. They will obtain a proposal for the repair to a conservator.

    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

    One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees

    CIMB CashLite / CIMB Bank Berhad Singapore Branch

    The CIMB CashLite personal loan is based on your available credit card credit limit therefore you have to be a CIMB cardholder to apply for it. One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees but CIMB doesn’t publish their interest rates online. The actual interest rate is personalised based on your risk profile and credit history so you might very well end up with a higher interest rate than advertised.

    Bank of China $martLoan / Bank of China

    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.
