Who Can Apply For Low Income Personal Loans?

What is the maximum amount of personal loan I can borrow?

Each bank offers a different range of personal loans for low-income earners and the maximum loan could reach up to RM250,000.

However, the amount of personal loan you’ll get is dependent on your monthly salary and credit report. Thereafter, the bank will decide on the maximum loan amount for you.

How to choose the best personal loan for low-income earners in Malaysia?

Taking a personal loan when you’re earning a low salary may be scary because what if you’re unable to repay the loan? Don’t worry, there are ways to choose the perfect personal loan according to your circumstances.

The first thing you need to look at when comparing personal loans for low-salary earners is the interest rate. List down a few loans that offer low interest rates.

Secondly, compare the loan tenure. A personal loan for low-income earners with the lowest interest rate may have short tenure, making it unsuitable for some people.

Lastly, use the personal loan calculator on our website to determine if you can actually afford the loan.

What are the documents to apply for low-income personal loans?

In general, below are some of the documents that you need to prepare to apply for low-income personal loans:

Salaried Employee:

  • Copy of your IC (front and back)
  • Latest 3-months or 6-months salary slip (depending on the bank)
  • Latest 3-months or 6-months EPF statement (depending on the bank)
  • Latest BE Form, with an official tax payment receipt
  • Latest EA Form


  • Copy of IC (front and back)
  • Business Registration Certificate
  • Latest 3-months or 6-months company bank statement (depending on the bank)
  • Latest BE Form, with an official tax payment receipt
  • Latest 6-months commission statements and bank statement (for commission earners and depending on the bank)

How to increase the approval rate of low-income personal loans?

Show the banks that you’re trustworthy by providing original documents, especially your address as well as your monthly commitments such as your electricity bills, water bills, or telco bills.

Please take note that some personal financing may require you to take out a Takaful plan in case you get into unfortunate events, resulting in you being unable to repay the financing.

To top it off, your credit or financial background also plays an important role as it could influence the chances of approval of your loan. Hence, we suggest that you have a credit background check as the first step and you can do so online via Experian, for example.

Overall, please consult with the bank of your choice before you make a decision to take up a loan.
