BANK ISLAM OFFERS FINANCIAL RELIEF FOR FLOOD VICTIMS

In response to the terrible flooding that has afflicted several areas of Malaysia, Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad (Bank Islam) today announced the launch of the Prihatin Programme for Flood to help affected finance clients who are eligible for this programme. Customers with personal, house, and auto loans who have been affected by the tragedy may request a six-month deferral of their monthly payments, according to the terms and restrictions established.

In addition, Bank Islam also offers a free replacement for damaged or lost credit cards-i and debit cards-i and chequebooks.

In aiding the affected micro, small and medium-sized (MSMEs) businesses, Bank Islam is  offering the Disaster Relief Facility 2022 for MSMEs Affected by the Recent Floods to  Business Financing-i customers. Under this facility, the eligible micro-enterprise can apply  for a financing amount of up to RM150,000, while the financing size for SMEs is RM700,000  with a tenure of seven years, including a moratorium of six (6) months.

Meanwhile, a moratorium of up to six (6) months is also made available to Bank Islam’s  existing MSME customers affected in districts identified by The National Disaster  Management Agency (NADMA) as flood disaster areas. Financial assistance is open to  all credit facilities with scheduled or contractually due payments, specifically the Term  Financing Facilities, Revolving Credit & Cash Line Facilities and Trade Facilities.
