  • Examine your financial condition: Before applying for a loan, you should examine your existing financial situation. Consider your current bills, emergency fund, and whether you could use savings or extra income to make a significant buy.
  • Clarify the purpose of your loan: Loans should improve the quality of your life or provide economic value. The advantages of learning new skills or purchasing a condo should be obvious. Banks will assess your application and establish the interest rate based on the purpose of your loan.
  • Check your repayment capacity: Ensure your income meets your loan installments. Consider your valuables as collateral, then review your monthly budget to see if you can afford a loan.

The Debt Burden Ratio (DBR) is a fundamental instrument used by lending institutions, such as banks, to estimate your ability to repay your debt. It is the proportion of your monthly revenue to your required loan payments. A greater DBR could lead to a reduced loan amount or even loan denial.
