Unsecured Loan Singapore
Unsecured loans refer to loans that borrowers can obtain without pledging any form of assets. Lenders qualify borrowers for unsecured loans based on their credit history and income. Examples of more popular business unsecured loans available in Singapore include: Business Term Loans, Enterprise Singapore’s Working Capital Loans and LEFS Micro Loan Scheme.
Enterprise Singapore’s Working Capital Loans and LEFS Micro Loan Scheme are government-assisted unsecured loans, where the Singapore government shares the risk of loan defaults with the participating financial institutions in view that borrowers do not pledge any assets with lenders.

- Borrowers can borrow up to S$500,000
Private funders also offer unsecured loans, but these typically come with –
- Smaller loan quantum
- Shorter tenor of up to 12 months
