that if your request for a loan is submitted in the morning with the relevant documents, then
you can practically drive your dream car home in the afternoon, as your loan would already

process. “We currently have about 300,000 customers and we are confident that this latest
contest with its attractive 0% interest rate will bring in an additional 50,000 new customers in
the next six (6) months, keeping us in the lead in the hire purchase business,” said Lor.
“We are always looking at how we can make banking faster, hassle-free and more attractive for our customers, while also being more rewarding,” Lor added. “One such example was
when EON Bank Group became the first bank in Malaysia to let customers clear all their
cheques in just 2 business days, from anywhere within the country, without charging
outstation cheque processing fees.”
