With the nature of Singapore’s economy and development, it’s no surprise that people from different countries test the waters of employment in Lion City. Their reasons would vary; some foreigners are working here for better opportunities, while some because they are working for a major corporation and they have been assigned here. Regardless, there are now 2 million foreigners living in Singapore for employment and the numbers are still growing. But living in Singapore without any kinfolks can prove to be the biggest challenge once you encounter some struggles with your finances.
Don’t stress about your financial problems for we have compiled 4 of the best loan agencies in Paya Lebar that not only cater to Singaporeans, but also to people with other nationalities as well!
Note: This list is strictly not in order.
1. Minterest Money
Ah, a name that we have heard before–Minterest Money offers its services not only to Singapore locals, but also to foreigners who are currently employed in Singapore, or are S-pass holders. Upon the assessment of your application and financial history using their proprietary credit scoring algorithm, you can loan as much as 6 times the average amount you earn each month! This is because their unique algorithm is designed by their team to get you the highest loan amount you can get, and lowest interest rate possible! As for the repayment terms, unsecured loans can be paid for as much as 36 months, with secured loans going even higher. This is a deal you can’t find elsewhere!
This loan agency has made it to our list multiple times, and for good reasons! Not only are they efficient and reliable, but they offer a wide variety of lending services which makes this loan agency a favorite among Singaporeans (and non-Singaporeans).
First time to loan from Licensed Moneylender. Their interest is much lower than others and the Staff is professional to go through the terms and conditions. Signed the agreement and the money is transferred on the same day to your account. Do check them out if in need of loans.

I have never borrowed from any moneylender before and was abit worrie as I heard scary stories on how they will demand for payments. However, I was in need of money and went ahead. The office was professional looking and the staff were nice and helpful and explain in detail the whole process and the fees involved. I felt comfortable and proceed to take a loan from them. Thumbs up for the reliability!
I was running late and called to ask them if they can wait as I urgently needed cash. They were patient and helpful and waited for me. I am grateful for their help and fair practice.

3. Orange Credit
Located in Singapore’s City Plaza, Orange Credit is among the favorites of Singaporeans because aside from the fact that it has been seasoned for over 8 years, its location is very accessible as well (literally just a 5-minute walk from Paya Lebar’s MRT station). Their requirements for foreign loan applications are pretty much the same as other loan agencies–you must be employed in Singapore, and a guarantor will help your odds of getting your application approved if you don’t have a credit score. What sets Orange Credit apart from other loan agencies in the area is how they treat their clients–you can expect their financial consultants to be very professional in all the phases of your transaction with them! Upon application, they are committed to make sure that your information is handled with utmost confidentiality, even until after you pay out the loan you are applying for.
Aside from their professional consultants, their application is also speedy, and they offer their competitively low interest rates to foreigners as well! Give Orange Credit a call now and get your financial needs attended.
I’m grateful for the professional and patience service that Orange Credit staffs provided. I now have a full understanding of the terms in the loan contract. Definitely recommend to those who need help in their rainy days. Thumbs up!

I like that their service is fast and efficient. The in-charge explained everything very clearly. Would come back to loan again or refer friends to loan from ORANGE CREDIT.
