Business / 5 Things To Know Before Your First Loan Application by mykwaba: 10:03am On Jul 01, 2022
Lots of people use debt to fund purchases they would not otherwise be able to afford, such as renting a home or buying a car. While loans can be great financial tools when they are used properly, they can be great adversaries as well. If you're considering applying for your first personal loan, it’s important to know certain information, both so you can provide it to potential lenders and for your own awareness.

1. Credit score

A good credit score and credit history show lenders that you pay your credit obligations on time. The better your credit, the better your chances of securing a loan at the most favourable terms. Before you apply for a loan, check your credit score and reports for errors that could drag down your score. If your credit isn’t in great shape, we recommend holding off on applying for a loan and instead work to improve your credit by saving on Kwaba.

2. Income

Of course, your monthly take-home affects your ability to repay your loan. You have to know just how much you’re bringing home each month so you'll know whether you can afford monthly loan payments. Remember to include all income sources, not just your primary one. This may include a spouse’s income, child support, a second job or freelancing income.

3. Choosing the right loan amount

Your income is the only one part of the equation. It’s also important to know your monthly debt obligations. Based on the cost associated with your needs, you can decide what you need to borrow. If your income is N50,000 a month but you pay N45,000 each month toward your debts, you won’t be able to pay off a new loan. Do not take more than you need at any time.

4. Payment flexibility

There are lenders across the market that offer artificially low-interest rates or gimmicky schemes. They make the interest rate appear low initially but as time passes, it increases substantially. It is vital to examine the lender’s payment plan to know if it’s convenient for you to pay back. Kwaba offers convenient monthly plans for rent payments at relatively low interest rates. You can apply for a flexible rent payment plan using Kwaba. Click this link to apply. https:///3AeuF5q

5. Customer support and response times

When it comes to financial matters, customer support is critical. You wouldn’t want a lender that takes a long time to process your loan or does not quickly respond to urgent queries. If their services are not as swift as you’d want, take your business elsewhere.

Loans are big business in the financial world. They are used to make money for the lenders. No lender wants to lend someone money without the promise of something in return. To keep from taking on too much debt, you should understand how loans work and how money is made for the lenders before you begin borrowing money from eager lenders.

Family / 4 Common Loan Mistakes You Should Avoid Making by mykwaba: 9:16am On Jun 24, 2022
Loans are financial products that allow a customer to access a fixed amount of money at the outset of the transaction, with the condition that this amount, plus the agreed interest, be returned within a specified period. While a loan provides all of the money requested at the time it is issued, credit on the other hand provides the customer with an amount of money that can be used as needed, using the entire amount borrowed, a portion of it, or none at all.

Having good credit is one of the biggest rewards of a positive financial lifestyle. There are many benefits to having good credit. Such as being an essential factor in qualifying for the best mortgage rates, personal loans, business loans and lots more. It is used to establish a person’s creditworthiness, loan eligibility, and credit amount. If you’re not sure where you fit on the credit score spectrum, then you should start using Kwaba to build and track changes to your credit score.

However, not understanding credit can also cost a lot. Avoiding common loan mistakes can help protect your credit score. Here are four of the most common credit mistakes you should avoid making.

1. Missing payments: Your payment history is an important factor in determining your credit score. Since your on-time payment record is 35% of your credit score, even paying late only once in a while can wreck your score. In order not to miss payments, you can set up automatic repayment. If auto payment isn’t available to you, set a reminder on your smartphone, write it on your calendar—whatever it takes to make your brain do what it naturally wants to avoid. If you can’t avoid paying late, call the lender. You can often work out an arrangement that won’t get reported to the credit agencies.

2. Not checking credit:
Your credit reports are used by lenders in deciding to lend you money. It’s important to always check your credit report regularly to search for identity theft and fraudulent accounts opened in your name. You can also catch credit reporting errors like inaccurate balances and payments. Disputing credit reporting errors is free and can help you improve your credit score. You can use the Kwaba app to request for your credit report.

3. Frequent credit applications: Applying for too many credit cards and loans in a short period is another common credit mistake. Credit applications usually require hard inquiries that temporarily penalize your credit score and can reduce your approval odds for new accounts.

4. Being credit invisible: If you have never borrowed money or opened an applicable account, you are more likely credit invisible.If you don’t have a credit record that the credit reporting agencies can score, you may be “credit invisible.” And you may have trouble getting credit when you need it.

To sum it all, keeping a good credit report helps ensure your credit history is accurate and you get the best credit score possible. You should also avoid loan mistakes such as the common ones listed above and not be afraid to dispute a wrong credit report.

Properties / Everything You Need To Know About Living In Lagos by mykwaba: 10:04am On Jun 01, 2022
Living in Lagos is very exciting but it can also be stressful. Even if life in the city isn’t always pleasant and Lagosians are constantly looking for ways to get out, there are still good reasons to live in Nigeria’s smallest but most populated city; nonetheless, there are still a few things you should know before relocating to Lagos.

Lagos is Nigeria’s largest metropolis and Africa’s second most populous, with a population of 15.3 million people in the city proper as of 2015. It served as Nigeria’s national capital until December 1991, when the government chose to relocate the country’s capital to Abuja in the country’s center. As of 2018, the Lagos metropolitan region had a population of around 23.5 million people, making it Africa’s largest metropolitan area.

Lagosians don’t stop, they are always on the move. Here are things you need to know about living in Lagos.

Lagos is a city of contrasts.

Do you want to meet an Igbo Muslim? It’s quite likely that he’ll be found in Lagos. In Lagos, you’ll discover Yorubas, Igbos, Hausas, Nupes, and any other group you can think of. This implies that any type of tribal bias would be frowned upon, although we do have unique circumstances.

Lagos is a little pricey.

Affordability in Lagos is highly subjective, as practically everything is costly; including house rent, groceries, transportation, tuition fees, and so on. ‘Shoe get size, Okrika get quality,’ goes the phrase, which essentially means ‘know your boundaries.’ Keep your spending to a minimum. Individuals residing 3+ hours away from their places of work are a result of Lagos’ perceived affordability (excluding traffic hours). This is due to the high cost of the rent.

Population

This isn’t news, Lagos is already overcrowded. As a result, amenities such as housing, transportation, and so on are in short supply. It always feels like the city is packed to the gills and everyone is rushing to get somewhere. So, if you decide to live here, be prepared.

Public transportation is available.

Transportation in Lagos can also be a headache for a variety of reasons, but overcrowding is at the top of the list, followed by terrible roads, bad drivers, and so on. You will also come across folks driving fancy vehicles, although there are more affordable modes of transportation such as regular-sized yellow buses, BRTs, keke napeps or motorcycles (selective areas) for inner streets, or better yet, raid hailing applications such as Bolt, Uber, inDriver, and others.

Stay Woke

There’s a reason why Lagos is known as the city that never sleeps. Everyone is rushing. So be cautious and wise when interacting with folks in Lagos. Take extra measures at all times.

Noise

Despite their vibrant nightlife, Lagosians (like the rest of Nigeria) are mostly religious. Lagos has nearly an equal amount of Muslims and Christians. The majority of the country’s mega-churches are located here.

So don’t be surprised if you come across megaphones broadcasting religious messages or the local mosque waking you up at 5 a.m. to worship.

Aside from the religious aspect, the local CD vendor must play music to attract consumers, and the local bar must likewise play loud music to attract customers.

Then there’s the nightlife.

Lagos’ nightlife is perhaps second to none. People know that Lagosians work hard but also party hard. So, if you enjoy fun and nice vibes, you’ll never be bored. The best clubs, bars, restaurants, and lounges in Nigeria may be found on Lagos’s mainland and island, with some open 24 hours a day. We only have one piece of advice: don’t get carried away.

Finally, there are numerous opportunities.

With outstanding abilities and occasional contacts, you’ll find a source of money in Lagos. Even though the country as a whole is struggling with unemployment, the rise of many tech-enabled enterprises has created numerous jobs, and they are usually constantly looking for new workers.

So are you considering Lagos as your next location? You can join our renter’s WhatsApp community to find a suitable place for yourself via the link below. Rent doesn’t also have to be a problem, get it sorted with Kwaba. Visit kwaba.Africa to pay your rent today!

Lagosians don’t stop, they are always on the move. Here are things you need to know about living in Lagos.

Lagos is a city of contrasts.

Do you want to meet an Igbo Muslim? It’s quite likely that he’ll be found in Lagos. In Lagos, you’ll discover Yorubas, Igbos, Hausas, Nupes, and any other group you can think of. This implies that any type of tribal bias would be frowned upon, although we do have unique circumstances.

Lagos is a little pricey.

Affordability in Lagos is highly subjective, as practically everything is costly; including house rent, groceries, transportation, tuition fees, and so on. ‘Shoe get size, Okrika get quality,’ goes the phrase, which essentially means ‘know your boundaries.’ Keep your spending to a minimum. Individuals residing 3+ hours away from their places of work are a result of Lagos’ perceived affordability (excluding traffic hours). This is due to the high cost of the rent.

Population

This isn’t news, Lagos is already overcrowded. As a result, amenities such as housing, transportation, and so on are in short supply. It always feels like the city is packed to the gills and everyone is rushing to get somewhere. So, if you decide to live here, be prepared.

Public transportation is available.

Transportation in Lagos can also be a headache for a variety of reasons, but overcrowding is at the top of the list, followed by terrible roads, bad drivers, and so on. You will also come across folks driving fancy vehicles, although there are more affordable modes of transportation such as regular-sized yellow buses, BRTs, keke napeps or motorcycles (selective areas) for inner streets, or better yet, raid hailing applications such as Bolt, Uber, inDriver, and others.

Stay Woke

There’s a reason why Lagos is known as the city that never sleeps. Everyone is rushing. So be cautious and wise when interacting with folks in Lagos. Take extra measures at all times.

Noise

Despite their vibrant nightlife, Lagosians (like the rest of Nigeria) are mostly religious. Lagos has nearly an equal amount of Muslims and Christians. The majority of the country’s mega-churches are located here.

So don’t be surprised if you come across megaphones broadcasting religious messages or the local mosque waking you up at 5 a.m. to worship.

Aside from the religious aspect, the local CD vendor must play music to attract consumers, and the local bar must likewise play loud music to attract customers.

Then there’s the nightlife.

Lagos’ nightlife is perhaps second to none. People know that Lagosians work hard but also party hard. So, if you enjoy fun and nice vibes, you’ll never be bored. The best clubs, bars, restaurants, and lounges in Nigeria may be found on Lagos’s mainland and island, with some open 24 hours a day. We only have one piece of advice: don’t get carried away.

Finally, there are numerous opportunities.

With outstanding abilities and occasional contacts, you’ll find a source of money in Lagos. Even though the country as a whole is struggling with unemployment, the rise of many tech-enabled enterprises has created numerous jobs, and they are usually constantly looking for new workers.

Family / Everything You Need To Know About Living In Lagos by mykwaba: 9:27am On Jun 01, 2022
Living in Lagos is very exciting but it can also be stressful. Even if life in the city isn’t always pleasant and Lagosians are constantly looking for ways to get out, there are still good reasons to live in Nigeria’s smallest but most populated city; nonetheless, there are still a few things you should know before relocating to Lagos.

Lagos is Nigeria’s largest metropolis and Africa’s second most populous, with a population of 15.3 million people in the city proper as of 2015. It served as Nigeria’s national capital until December 1991, when the government chose to relocate the country’s capital to Abuja in the country’s center.

NYSC / Things To Look Out For When Viewing An Apartment by mykwaba: 10:22am On May 27, 2022
Renting a home is a big decision. You must ensure that the home is suitable for your needs and that everything is in working order. Before you go on your next property viewing, keep an eye out for these key elements and any red flags to help you make the best decision possible.

1. Dampness
The musty odor, mildew on the walls, peeling wallpaper, blistering paint, dark patches, discoloration, and mold are all signs of dampness. It is created by wet air condensing on the walls and is a sign of the building’s structure and ventilation. Damp can cause health problems, woodworm, and fungal rot, and it’s difficult to eradicate.

2. Aspect
Check which direction your home faces. The most desirable rear gardens are those that face south and receive the greatest sunlight during the summer. You also want as much light as possible to enter your home, so consider how much sunlight enters each room. Because the sun is hidden by the house as it rises and sets, the north-facing rear gardens receive minimal sunlight.

3. Room Size
Make sure that each room is a good size. Make sure your furniture will fit in the room; you could even use a tape measure to double-check. Landlords can be funny with sizes, especially in Lagos. So, watch carefully.

4. Neighbourhood
One crucial point to remember when purchasing a home is that location is everything; you can change the house but not the location. Is there a strong school system, good transportation, and plenty of parks and green space? Restaurants, shops, and, of course, a decent bar come to mind. Is there a strong sense of community in the region, or are crime rates high and the neighbors loud? Are there any upcoming developments that will affect the neighborhood? Try to figure it out during your visit, or drive around the neighborhood to get a sense of it. You wouldn’t want to live in a good place but a bad environment.

5. Windows
Run a finger down the window. Is there condensation? Are the window frames cracked and rotting? Do the windows have locks? They’ll need to change them and show that the house isn’t very well kept.

6. Plumbing
Make sure that the plumbing is in good working order. Check water pressure by flushing toilets and running taps. Make sure the pipes aren’t made of iron and are properly insulated. Make sure that under-sink cupboards are dry and that showers are warm.

7. Structure
Make sure the building’s structure is sturdy. If not, you may need a surveyor to assess this for you. Any big cracks across walls and joints signal that the building may be falling apart and may not be structurally safe. With the recent building collapse news in the country, you might really want to get help in checking this.

9. Electricals
Check that all electricals work by flicking light switches and plug sockets on and off. Check that the oven, fridge, and stove work. Ask about electricity bills or any warranties on electrical items. Are any electric wires exposed or broken? If so, this could be very dangerous, so check their condition. It can cost a lot to restore and change electric circuits and a big task in partaking in any electrical work.

11. Mobile
Whilst looking around the property, take out your mobile phone and check your data connection and signal. In this modern age, even things like mobile signal matter when buying a house, in fact, nearly half of 18-35-year-olds rank mobile as a key consideration when renting a new property.

12. Condition
Access the general condition of the house. Look out for cracks in walls, how fresh the paint looks, how worn carpets or floorboards are, and how creaky doors are. Understand how much the property needs, and figure out how much you’re willing to put into it.

13. Roof
Look out for any missing or displaced tiles or leaky gutters, which are particularly common in old or aging roofs. These tiles and gutters will need to be replaced, and maybe even the whole roof, which can be an expensive job. Flat roofs are particularly a problem, as have been constructed with cheaper materials. If you notice any standing water or cracks in this roof, warning bells should start going off. You can always get a roof survey to make sure.

16. Agent
Also, ask the agent. Ask how much commission is, how long the property has been on the market, and how quickly properties rent out in the area. How many viewings and offers have been made? This will enable you to figure out any moves to make next.

17. Bills
Find out how much living costs will be, as you’ll need to know how many extra costs you’ll need to pay once living there. How much are gas, water, and electric bills? How about TV and broadband costs?

19. Drainage
Look for sufficient drainage in the area, and check whether the property is prone to flooding. Are drains accessible, of the correct level, and draining properly and quickly? Make sure drains do not block easily. Look out for overflowing water, build-up of leaves and debris, or residue around the affected area.

20. Security
Assess how secure the property is. Make sure walls do not contain footholds for climbing and the front area is open and seen by passersby. Plants and shrubbery can also be kept to less than 1m in height. Ensure there is security lighting and windows and doors are fitted with five lever mortice locks so that burglars cannot break entry. An intruder alarm and fire alarm are also essential to maintain safety.

21. Noise
Simply listen while viewing houses. Is it possible to hear your next-door neighbors creating a racket, especially if the property is a terrace? How well is the structure soundproofed? Is it possible to hear cars or trains, and if so, how close is the property to the road or railway? Noise levels may not be a top priority when inspecting a home, but they can quickly become an issue once you move in.

22. Electricity
What is the property’s energy efficiency? You need to know this since it can help you save money on your energy costs (whilst saving the planet at the same time of course). Make certain to note how frequently they have electricity.

23. You
Finally, and perhaps most crucially, you must examine yourself on the property. Do you have a positive impression of it? Do you think you could live here? Is it possible to see all of your furnishings in each area, as well as cook in the kitchen, watch TV in the living room, and sleep in the bedroom? Are you willing to put in the effort required to make it your own? Do you feel comfortable in this area? If so, you may have discovered the ideal home for you.

Keep these crucial things in mind the next time you go to check a place. This will guarantee that you have a good grasp of the house and all of its nooks and crannies, as well as whether it is the correct fit for you.

Properties / How To Furnish An Apartment On A Budget by mykwaba: 11:08am On May 19, 2022
Moving to a new apartment may be costly; in addition to rent, you must factor in moving charges, utilities, deposits, and other expenditures. Furniture and decor are two areas where you can always save money. If you move frequently or just want to be economical, you don’t have to give up living in a comfortable and well-decorated house. If you want to save money but don’t know how to decorate an apartment on a budget, read on.

1. Buy in bulk

When purchasing furniture such as chairs, bed frames, cupboards, cabinets, wardrobes, and so on, it is more cost effective to purchase them all at once. You can receive some discounts on certain things if you do this. Set aside some money, especially if you want to have them built by a furniture expert of your choosing, because it is easier to bargain when there is a lot involved. Are you afraid of spending it? I’ve got you covered, just lock it in the Kwaba app.

2. Explore declutter items

If you enjoy high-end quality things but don’t want to spend a fortune on a table set for your new home, consider buying used furniture. Declutter items are used items that are placed up for sale for a variety of reasons such as relocation, abroad trip, furniture changes, and so on.
These items are brand new and still in good condition; they may come with the original packaging, receipt, and warranty cards.

On a declutter website, you may get products like air conditioners, chairs, bed frames, and kitchen utensils for low costs. For quick access, put “declutter” into Instagram search to get a list of current pages. Here’s how it works:

1. Go through the entire page.

2. Choose the desired item.

3. Communicate with the page owner and pay for the item (Page Owner’s Account Number).

4. Obtain the owner’s contact information for item inspection.

5. If you like it, you may pick it up.

This process is actually rather simple, but keep an eye out for phony declutter accounts that are only looking to deceive consumers. To be safe, ask a buddy who has used one previously.

3. Check Out Less Expensive Websites

You may also look at less priced websites like Jiji, where you can bargain with vendors, visit their shops to pick up products, or have them delivered to your home. This website also includes a review part where you can determine whether the vendor is genuine or a forgery.

It is also regarded as the business hub of the state. Ikeja is a well planned, clean, and quiet residential area in Lagos. If you like to hang out with friends, you can head to the Ikeja city mall or any cinemas, bars, or restaurants that are found throughout this neighborhood. There are also a lot of good schools, hospitals, and security outposts in Ikeja. It is a goldmine for landlords and property agents. Even if living in Ikeja sounds expensive, it is among the affordable places to live in Lagos.
