As we continue to help our readers make better financial decisions in their lives, we also constantly search for innovative ways to help simplify and speed up loan, credit card, insurance, and other application process. While working with our long-time partner, RHB Bank, we found that we can collaborate on helping Malaysians apply for a personal loan with zero hassle and almost instant approval. The rest, as they say, is history.
