Why are high consumer loan interest?
Given the causes affecting the output interest rates of consumer lending companies, TS. Can Van Luc said that the interest rate for consumer loans is higher than the lending interest rate through commercial banks because the activities of these two types are completely different, from the input capital to the risk of lending ...
"Banks are allowed to mobilize capital from the population, while financial companies are not, and the cost of capital of financial companies is much higher than that of banks," Luc said.
Experts also said that consumer lending companies often have to get capital from re-borrowing from banks or other financial companies, with interest rates of up to 10-15% / year.
Besides, Mr. Luc said that high interest rates partly came from very fast lending procedures, disbursed at the time of borrowing. Therefore, the cost of basic investment and employees on each loan of these companies is also higher than that of banks.
