Here’s the skinny on InstaLoan

What is InstaLoan?

InstaLoan is a fast, safe and fully unsecured personal loan where you can borrow between $5,000 to $50,000 and complete the application process 100% online.

Are there other fees?

There are no upfront fees to be paid in order to apply for a loan. If approved, there is a loan fee and a contribution to the Reserve Fund added on top of your loan and worked into the overall monthly payment.

What documents do I need to provide?

Just the standard stuff. To process your loan application, we’ll need the following:
  • One piece of national ID (passport, driver's licence or national ID card)
  • Selfie (uh huh, we’ll need to see what you look like)
  • Bank Statement (Two recent bank statements which show your name, your address, bank, branch (only if you’re with Scotiabank) and bank account number as well as account activity including salary payments and other credits)
  • Payslip (two recent payslips)
  • Job letter (A letter on your employer’s letterhead with details about your job title, employment tenure and salary)

Who’s behind InstaLoan?

That would be Massy Finance, a Trinidad and Tobago non-bank financial institution registered with the Central Bank, and Carilend, a leading fintech company headquartered in Barbados. Together, we are on a mission to revolutionise borrowing across the Caribbean through online banking. In 2017, Carilend successfully launched the first peer-to-peer lending service in Barbados. Three years later, they partnered with the VM Group in Jamaica to provide quick and easy online loans to Jamaicans. Now they are bringing this amazing technology to Trinidad and Tobago consumers with the powerful backing of Massy Finance.

Do I need to provide collateral?

All of our loans are unsecured personal loans, so we do not require any collateral, deposits or guarantors.

Are there any penalties for early repayment?

You can repay the loan at any time, and there are no penalties for early repayment. The interest is calculated on a reducing balance, so you will only pay interest for the time you had the loan.

What’s the interest rate?

Our interest rates vary between 10% and 15% per annum, depending on your individual loan terms.

How do I qualify for an InstaLoan?

We promote responsible borrowing by those who can afford it and are good with their money. To get a loan, you need to confirm:
  • You are between the ages of 20 and 65
  • You earn a net salary of at least TT$3,000 a month
  • You have a regular source of income which is paid into a local TT$ bank account
  • You’ve been continuously employed for at least 2 years
  • You have a good credit history
  • You can afford to repay the loan
  • You are a current resident in Trinidad and Tobago and have lived here for at least 3 years

How do I refer someone?

Sign in to your Carilend account dashboard, and look for the “Refer a friend” section on the Menu. Add your friend’s email and we'll email them a unique link with their referral offer.

How is the cost of my loan calculated?

Total Amount Payable: This is the amount you will pay if you repay your loan in full over the full term agreed and make all payments on time. The Total Amount Payable consists of:
  • Amount of Credit: How much you request to borrow.
  • Interest: What the Lender(s) will earn for lending you their money. Interest is charged on the amount borrowed and the Carilend Fee.
  • Carilend Fee: This is what you pay Carilend. The fee is spread over the life of your loan and included in your monthly instalment. It covers:
    • Arranging and managing your loan (currently TT$850)
    • The Reserve Fund Contribution which helps protect our Lenders (Varies as a percentage of loan amount depending on your credit score/Risk Grade)

What are some other useful terms I should know?

Monthly Instalments: The Total Amount Payable is divided into equal, fixed monthly instalment payments over the life of your loan.
APR (Annual Percentage Rate): The total cost of your loan as an annual percentage. This is useful to compare loans.
Loan Servicing Share of Interest: The amount we deduct from the interest you pay in every Monthly Instalment to cover the costs of managing your loan (currently set at 30% of the amount of each interest payment).
Late Repayment/Failed Direct Debit Fee: The fee payable for each time a loan payment is missed or paid late and/or a direct debit request is declined by your bank.
Interest on Late Payments: The interest paid on loan payments that have been missed or paid late.
