This is a life insurance policy designed to pay the outstanding principal balance, assuming that all the due installments were paid in the event of the death of that borrower during the term of the loan.
Credit Life is suitable for lending institutions i.e;
• Savings and Credit Co-operative societies (SACCOs)
• Micro-Finance Institutions
This covers insurance risks faced by the low income and under-served market segments. At APA life we aim to reach out to these individuals and families to provide financial protection (security and savings) through affordable products.
