Housing Loan

with 2 comments

Dear Pag-Ibig Fund,

I think you need to reconsider the branding of your housing loan. There’s really nothing abot-kamay about your “Abot-Kamay Pabahay” program. For a government institution that’s supposed to be helping out poor people, your interest rates aren’t much better than the commercial banks and the minimum salary your require for bigger loans is kind of ridiculous. If we were making that much money in the first place we wouldn’t need a freaking loan.

  2. 10.5 for loans of 800K to 2M. And that’s just for the first three years. It gets higher. At BDO you can get a loan with an interest rate fixed at 11.5 or floating starting at 9.5. If we took out a 2M loan from Pag-Ibig and paid it back over 20-30 years, we’d end up paying thrice the value of our property.
