How is interest calculated?

Our Loan interest is calculated using the following methods:

  • Reducing Balance Method – means as the loan principal decreases so does the interest as it is calculated as a percentage of the loan balance each month.
  • Add On Method – means the interest is calculated for the life of the loan and added to the loan principal before the installment is calculated. This interest is a fixed amount each month for the life of the loan.
