Bank of Maldives BML has announced the reduction of its Home Loan interest rates to 9 percent, the lowest rate available in the country.

The bank said that the reduced rate is available for customers applying for new loans or looking to refinance their existing loans in other financial institutions.

It said that customers can purchase apartments and row houses anywhere in the country with a repayment period of 20 years with BML’s Home Loan.

We are pleased to be in a position to announce rate reductions for a number of products in our loan portfolio. We now offer the country’s lowest interest rate for home loans which will result in substantial savings for home buyers. For a MVR 3 million loan, for example, customers can expect to save about MVR 500,000. Our Kiyavaa Loan rate has also been reduced and we have also eased Lifestyle Loan eligibility from today.
