(a) The lender provides the borrower with loans of more than $25,000 and secured bank loans, credit card or cheque accounts fall under the „credit facility“ category. The maximum interest rate is also linked to the SARB Bank Repurchase Rate and is currently 29.8 per cent per annum. When times get tough, credit can be an important resource to help businesses weather a storm. Specifically, credit facilities can be real life savers. This type of loan is the offer of a credit institution to extend loans to a commercial customer, often in the form of overdraft services, revolving lines of credit or letters of credit. The credit agreement is a written document detailing the terms of the loan. Credit contracts in South Africa are agreements or contracts in South Africa in which payment or repayment by one party (the debtor) is carried over to another (creditors).

Therefore, credit cannot be considered a basic universal service to which access to water, health care and electricity should also be expanded. There is a greater need to reconcile access to credit with the protection of consumers, especially vulnerable people. The new credit limits have a negative impact on small loans. The smaller the credit, the more expensive it is.
A one-month R500 loan costs about as much as the typical thirty percent per month that is calculated before the law. Small credits will be even more expensive. An R200 loan costs 46 per cent per month (552 per cent per year), more than nine times the maximum interest rates of five per cent per month. If you have purchased items but want to terminate the credit contract, you usually have to return the goods or find another way to pay for them. Unsecured loans are usually small financial loans (microcredits) repaid in tranches, as the lender does not have a guarantee for debt repayment. Microcredit as a category of NCR is generally intended for credit providers who can borrow a ceiling of R8,000 for up to 6 months. In addition, settlement disputes can be referred directly to the appropriate ombudsman if it is a financial institution (such as a bank), a consumer court or an alternative dispute resolution mediator.  With the agreement of the parties, the order can be recorded in writing and a judicial or judicial decision can be made. Any consumption law implies a duty of credit providers. Credit providers` obligations are heavy; they bear many administrative burdens. Some of the lender`s most important tasks are unfortunately that in South Africa, too many people with too little money got too much credit.
The end result is over-indebtedness that leads to an endless cycle of frustration for the consumer, who will never be able to repay his debts.  A consumer is over-indebted when the available information indicates that the consumer is not able to pay in a timely manner the amounts against in a credit contract. In deciding whether or not a consumer is over-indebted, a court must consider the consumer`s agreement (c) the agreement contains a statement from the borrower that the borrower agrees to waive the protection and remedial measures that would be made available to the borrower if it is a regulated credit contract and which are in accordance with the ACF rules within the meaning of this paragraph. (b) agreements that are conditional sales contracts or lease-to-sale contracts; This is the term given to the standard rules of each institution. For example, a provision that a written agreement is required to change the terms of the loan may be part of the boiler platform.
