Credit conditions for retirees
Many banks are willing to grant a loan to a pensioner. However, he must meet certain requirements regarding:

The age of the pensioner is also important for banks. Persons with approximately 70 years of age can get a loan in most banks in the country, but it will be a rather short-term commitment, granted for a maximum of 8 years, although it depends on the individual situation of the pensioner and on the policy pursued by the bank.
The loan will also not be granted for a high amount, because in the majority of cases the income of the pensioner will not be too substantial. The history of crediting with credit checker also matters.If the potential borrower has negative entries in the Credit Information Bureau, he will certainly not get a loan from the bank.
