Xtenda Zambia provides financial assistance that generally ranges between K1000 and K150,000 with loan periods of between 3 and 72 months. The loan period is determined by the client and the cost of the loan is subject to current market trends, where Xtenda offers a competitive advantage to similar facilities offered by other recognized financial institutions in the market.
Xtenda arranges a number of free benefits which include:
Credit life insurance which expunges the outstanding loan balance in the case of death of the client. This covers against Xtenda having a claim against the loan holder’s estate or employer benefits
Funeral cover up to K20,000 (T’s & C’s apply) for the duration of the loan. The amount is paid to the spouse/beneficiary, contributing to funeral costs.
Unit trust savings account (T’s & C’s apply)
Free smartphone (T’s & C’s apply)
The criteria for granting financial assistance is subject to a range of supporting documentation being made available (only original documents will be accepted).
Xtenda Financial Holdings Limited as a group is very conscious of its social responsibilities towards its clients. With this, financial assistance is limited by a monthly instalment that is expressed as a percentage of the employee’s salary where the percentage is regulated by government. This ensures that an employee’s take home salary is sufficient to provide for basic necessities. These conditions may be negotiable, however all amendments from the normal terms and conditions must carry the approval of both Government and Xtenda.
The financial cost of the loan facility can only be made possible by reducing the risk attached to the loan and this requires the cooperation of the employer. All financial assistance granted will be paid in equal monthly instalments generated from a salary deduction authorization granted by the employer. The employer is not required to stand as a guarantor for the loans advanced to employees, only to deduct the monthly instalments payable from each employee’s salary prior to the salary being paid into the employee’s bank account. The deductions will then be paid directly to Xtenda on a monthly basis.
Depending on the country’s banking system, the processing of loan applications normally takes between 12 and 48 hours for the funds to be disbursed and credited to the client’s bank account.
In summary, Xtenda Financial Holdings Limited strives to give all employers comfort that we are long term players offering retail financial products and services to all employees, but particularly those that have no access to the formal banking sector. This is undertaken with the utmost integrity together with fair and transparent pricing with a focus on long term relationships with employers who seek to support an improved lifestyle for all their employees.
