Kasumi is one of a few online personal loan services that have made a name for themselves by taking advantage of the fact that people can borrow money without having to sign up for a credit card.
They have also attracted a lot of attention for offering a large number of different loan products, including loans for people looking for a job, students who want to pay off a student loan, and people who are looking for ways to finance their own business.
As of last month, they had a total of more than $11 billion in loans from people all over the world, with roughly a quarter of those people paying off the loans within six months.
As one of those customers, I spoke with Kasumi about their business and why they chose to go public.
What is Kasumi?
What is a Kasumi loan?
A loan is an online account with the goal of paying back the loan.
A loan is typically a fixed rate loan that is usually repaid in the following six months, but in some cases, the amount can be significantly reduced or doubled.
A typical loan is $1,000 per month for two years, but can range from $1 for $1.5 million.
Kasumi’s loan program is unique in that it allows borrowers to choose how much they want to borrow and how much to pay down the loan over the term of the loan, as well as the payment schedule.
This gives borrowers more flexibility than most other lenders, which is especially helpful for those who don’t have any experience with credit card loans.
How does it work?
When a borrower enters their credit card number into the Kasumi online loan application, they are asked to complete a form on the bottom of the page called “Credit Card Information,” which allows them to quickly check the information and verify that they are not on a credit report that would negatively affect their ability to repay the loan as scheduled.
This information is then sent to Kasumi for the borrower to use in determining how much money to pay and to determine the repayment schedule.
The next step is for the customer to fill out a credit check.
If the borrower has any delinquent charges or debt, the company will contact the customer and ask for a loan modification or default modification, depending on how much of the delinquent charges are owed and whether or not the debt is due in full.
If all of the payments are made, the customer is then allowed to keep the money and no more.
If any of the unpaid debt is still outstanding, the borrower will be allowed to continue to pay the balance over the loan term.
The payment schedule is a key element of a loan and is how the borrower is compensated for their efforts.
The company offers four payment schedules.
The first is an “in-kind” loan, where the loan is paid back in the form of cash or in a credit or debit card.
The next payment is for a fixed term loan, which generally means that the borrower can keep the loan but has to pay it off every month for six months instead of the normal four months.
The last payment is a default payment, which means that no payment is made at all for the loan period.
The final payment schedule, known as an “extended” loan payment, allows the borrower another six months to repay, but is not required.
The extension is usually only used when the borrower wants to pay back the entire loan and to avoid paying more than they owe.
The lender will send the borrower a bill for the amount of the extension.
In other words, if the borrower pays off $50,000 in their first year, they will have to pay $25,000 over the next five years.
How does Kasumi calculate repayment?
In order to determine how much the customer should pay, Kasumi has a system called the “Pay-off-Per-Day” (PPD) formula.
This formula takes into account all of these factors, such as the loan balance and the amount owed to date, and calculates the repayment amount based on how long it takes the borrower’s account to pay each day.
For example, if a loan has a balance of $50 and the repayment date is December 31, 2020, then the payment amount would be calculated as follows: $50 = $5.50 x 60 days = $4,080.
This is an approximate calculation, as there is no way to know exactly how long the loan will be outstanding.
When the loan was created, the PPD was calculated as a fixed amount based off the loan amount.
Since Kasumi began offering loans in October, the formula has changed from a fixed number based off a loan amount to a PPD that includes a monthly payment amount and the balance.
How do you get the money back?
The amount of money that a borrower owes on a loan depends on the length of the borrower-to-lender relationship.
