OFW Loan Pricing Comparison and Calculator

For landbased Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW), have a look at the loan comparison chart we put together from information we gathered from different private lending companies. This table serves as a calculator for various loan amounts. It shows how much your monthly payment would be for 6 months and no grace period given the loan amount. We use the net pay out amount, after any up-front fees deducted to make the numbers comparable. Wherever possible, we use mystery shopping and actual amortization tables shared by customers:

      1. Hello Evelyn! The loan amount to be granted will depend on several factors po. Tinitignan ni lender kung magkano ang kinikita ninyo buwan-buwan, kung mayroon kayong mga assets na maaaring magamit bilang collateral, at ang kakayahan magbayad. Depende po ito per lender.

    1. Hi Ramonito! Interest rate is at 7.5%, so that’s 50,000 x 7.5% every month ๐Ÿ™‚ We’re not sure though if this is the equation followed for the computation of interest payment ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Hi, I’m in ofw from KSA with professional category job. As a member of OWWA, is it possible that a loan can be granted, say max. cap 2M, to be used not to start a new business but to be used as investment capital in a well established company inclined in agricultural business??

    1. Hi Adrian! The approved amount will depend on your collateral, capacity to pay as evidenced by your income, and credit history among others. Ideally, the OWWA Loan is for business purposes and we’re not sure if OWWA/LandBank will approve the purpose of “investment capital.”

  5. Hi po..

    1. Hi Florinda! You may check with PAG-IBIG if they offer business loans for members. OWWA Loan is specifically for OFWs with existing employment contract.

  6. Hi po. We had a loan last year in Asialink for the terms 6 months to pay. But we finished the loan for only 3 months to pay. Why we have to pay the whole amount for terms 6 months including interest and penalties .
