Any foreign or local student studying in Philippines can apply to a bank for a loan.

According to the statistics, about 80% of the total number of the company’s customers use this option.
Bank of the Philippine Islands
Another state organization that provides loans for students. The main feature of the loan – is the submitting speed, the ability to immediately receive money in state currency (pesos), a large number of benefits and a variety of bonus programs for those who borrowed money.

Those loans that can be repaid early, as a rule, are provided on less favorable terms. Students are granted loans on special conditions for the purchase of housing and car.

Loan requirements for students
To the student who applied for a loan, most state and commercial banks have the following requirements:
- It is necessary to permanently reside in the Philippines for at least twelve months, consecutive;
- The student mustn’t have debts on other loans, both in Philippines and in other countries;
- It is necessary to have your own or rented housing. Statistics argue that those who have their own housing are more often approved for loans than those who rent an apartment;
- Most banks require a student to be a regular customer of a particular organization and have their own account there;
- Also, to receive a loan on special conditions, the student must provide a document confirming the fact of his education at a local institute or university. You can get this document directly from the university.
It should be taken into consideration that the Philippine credit institutions quite often refuse the loan without explaining the reasons, despite the fact that the student has provided all the necessary documents for them. Most often it happens with foreigners. Therefore, a person who does not know all the nuances of banking in the country, and who does not know the local language well, it is better to apply for a loan accompanied by a lawyer and an interpreter.
How to make a loan for students approved?
To immediately receive money after applying for a loan, you must immediately provide all the necessary documents. Also it will increase student’s chance for loan, if one have a certificate of permanent or temporary income above the minimum subsistence level, which in Philippines is 30,000 pesos. Also, for the approval of a loan, it is desirable to have a permanent or temporary place of work, in this case student should provide the bank with the document that student combines full-time (part-time) studying with work or services delivery.
Also, it increases the chance for approval of the loan the availability of a guarantor. As a guarantor may act a friend or close relative, as well as a spouse. The length of residence and studying in Philippines also plays a role: for students of recent years who have already lived in the country for several years, loans are issued more often than for first year students. And, of course, the credit history matters. If the student has already one (or several) times borrowed from the bank and paid the loan on time, the financial institution will gladly meet him next time.
Getting a loan for a student in Philippines is not as difficult as it seems. The main thing is to apply to the verified state organizations and not to agree doubtful offers.
