Finance your day-to-day cash flow requirements of your normal business activity with their overdraft facility. This is a revolving borrowing facility repayable on demand, made available in connection with a current account. Overdrafts are a flexible form of borrowing for short-term rather than long-term financing for which other, more appropriate credit lines are available.


Opportunities are not given. They are seized. While many entrepreneurs recognize the importance of planning for long-term growth, not many know what the key considerations are when evaluating capital budgeting decisions to fund business growth.

Seizing Opportunities for Business Growth. Business expansion requires capital investments, which are basically medium to long-term investments financed by one or a combination of the following:

  • Retention of business profits.
  • Injection of fresh capital by business owner(s).
  • Financing via bank loans that need to be repaid based on projected future business cash flows.

Term Loans are a structured form of borrowing intended to finance specific transactions or assets. Drawings are usually made in one amount and the repayment is typically made by fixed monthly, quarterly or annual repayments depending on the nature of the underlying transaction, and the cash flow it generates.

Short Term Loan

This is a contract between a borrower and the Bank where the customer is provided a loan amount either in local or foreign currency for a period not exceeding one year. Interest is charged on the individual drawings made under the loan at a rate agreed at the time of the drawing.

Medium Term Loan

This is a contract between a borrower and the Bank whereby the Bank provides the borrower with a certain currency (in this case domestic), for a period in excess of one year and up to 5 years. Drawings against the loan are usually made in one amount. The principal and interest will be repaid over the tenure of the loan as per the agreed terms.

Long Term Loan

This is a contract between a borrower and the Bank where Standard Chartered Bank provides the borrower with a certain amount for a period in excess of 5 years and up to 7 years.
