The personal loan customer protection plan is very vital especially when you are taking any form of credit whether it is an overdraft, revolving credit loan, student loan or personal loan, according to the nichemarket.co.za website there are about 6 million South Africans who are currently blacklisted, so the customer protection plan protect you from getting blacklisted in the event that you can not repay your credit, this maybe due to a number of reasons such as being retrenched from work or temporarily disabled.
Life is not predictable and anything can happen such as losing your job and other factors that could make you be unable to repay your credit or loan, so it is advisable to ask your service loan or credit provider if they do offer their customers a credit customer protection plan, if they don’t you might be tempted to take the loan or credit provided, but it is wise to think about the future and protect your self, rather take credit to a provider that offers the protection plan.
