Applying for a BDO Personal Loan


Just like other banking institutions, BDO Unibank also offers personal loans to its members.  As discussed in previous articles, a personal loan is probably the most flexible type of loan because you can apply for it and use it for tons of reasons.  In this article, we will be teaching you how you can apply for a BDO Personal Loan.

Loan eligibility is probably the most important factor because even if you have the capacity to pay, if you aren’t eligible, you cannot file for a loan.  People who can apply for a loan are:

  • At least 21 years old but not older than 70 years old
  • One who has a salary or is self-employed
  • A person who earns more than the minimum income required
