When you decide to take out a Sanlam Personal Loan*, our consultants will determine your interest rate and initiation fee according to your personal risk profile. Your loan repayment term can range from 24 to 72 months, and interest rate is between 21.9% and 27.50% per annum (compounded monthly).
Let’s look at an illustrative example of a loan at an interest rate of 27.5% per annum: The loan amount is R50 000.00 plus a once-off initiation fee of R1 207.50 and a monthly admin fee of R69, over 72 months. This means that the total cost of the loan will be R110 013.57, which is an maximum Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 30.76%.
*Loans are subject to the National Credit Act, No 34 of 2005.

One cashback per loan agreement. This is an indicative cash-back amount only. Terms and conditions apply.
You can apply for any amount, from R5 000 to R200 000 in increments of R1 000.
With a Sanlam Personal Loan your loan amount will be deposited quickly and directly into your bank account.

No, you don't as the Sanlam Personal Loan is unsecured.
If you are married in community of property or under customary or foreign law, you will require consent from your spouse to enter into any credit agreement.
Sanlam will always do its best to accommodate your requests, but ultimately your final loan amount will be based on your personal financial profile and is subject to credit approval.
To qualify for a loan you have to both work and live in South Africa.
The money is yours to spend as you see fit.
Repayment terms for a Sanlam Personal Loan are from 24 months to 6 years (72 months) and based on the Loan Options table below.
No. The interest rate on your loan will be fixed at our current interest rate for your full loan term, so your repayments will never increase, even if the interest rate goes up.
For your convenience, your repayments will be deducted by debit order from the bank account into which your salary is paid every month.
Every Sanlam Loan includes our Personal Protection Plan, which settles your outstanding loan balance in the event of your death, permanent disability or certain dread diseases. It also provides limited cover in the event of temporary disability and should you be retrenched, a once-off payment equal to six instalments will be paid out to you. Of course, you're free to substitute the plan with a policy of your choice, providing the cover offered is equivalent.
Qualifying Sanlam Reality members could enjoy up to 20% of their loan repayments back once they’ve made 12 consecutive repayments.
