Can I still apply for a loan after declaring bankcruptcy?

I started a business in my mid 20s. I have been investing all my time and effort since then. It has been my family's main source of income and we greatly rely on it. As years have passed I am always confident of our income not until the our family has faced a serious challenge in our life as my wife have gotten sick. I started to lose focus on my business and started having a pile of debts.

    Starting a business is a great idea but has a lot of risks. When your business has reached its limit, it will go to bankruptcy. It will surely go to liquidation to compensate the debts that has been occured to the creditors. Now, you can still open a business even though you have debts. It depends on the business you are planning.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
