6. What is the repayment procedure for the borrowed loans?
The repayment terms are finalized by the mutual agreement of the borrowers and lenders. Most lenders prefer online transferring of the instalments directly into their bank accounts. To avoid any non-payments, you can set your bank account for auto-debiting so the instalment amount gets transferred to the lender's account automatically on a set date. If the online transfer is not feasible for you, talk to the lender for a preferred mode of repayment.
