What is a personal loan?

A personal loan in The Netherlands is a type of consumer credit that has a fixed term, monthly instalments and interest. The amount of the loan is paid out to the borrower in a single payment. This form of lending provides certainty, because the number of instalments required to pay off the loan is laid down beforehand. Each instalment is made up of a repayment amount and an interest payment on the amount outstanding.

You can take out a personal loan in The Netherlands with low interest rates at Becam. Before you take out the loan, we will show you exactly how much of your loan you will repay each month and how much interest you will pay (together, these form the monthly instalment). If you want to borrow money to buy a car or pay for alterations to your home, this makes things very straightforward.

Interest on personal loans

The monthly instalments are made up of a repayment and an interest payment and will be fixed throughout the term of the loan. If you wish, you can apply to borrow more than one amount from us, in which case you would need to pay more than one monthly instalment.
