According to statistic, the ratio of household debt to gross domestic product (GDP) in Malaysia grew by 13 per cent to 83 per cent in this year (2013) from 70 per cent in 2009.

This is a dangerous signal. And because of this , The Ministry of Finance Malaysia decided to limiting maximum tenure of personal loans to 10 years and properties financing to 35 years, and prohibition on the offering of pre-approved personal financing products.

Bank Negara Malaysia has also urged financial institutions to give greater emphasize on affordability assessment as compared to repayment history and collateral which largely dominated the lending decision even when affordability assessment indicated potential future vulnerability.


Since getting loan from bank is becoming hard, there are some licensed money lender offer better alternative. For example, UMC offer personal loan ( pinjaman peribadi ) for those who want to borrow money for business expansion or house renovation.
