  •  What requirements does Bancoldex demand for allocating resources?

The documents needed to apply for credit are established by each financial institution credit policy. Bancoldex specific conditions to access credit lines are detailed in each regulatory note. Due to our legal nature, Bancoldex is not the institution that established the requirements to allocate resources to the credit beneficiary; the financial intermediary chosen by the beneficiary to process his/her application is responsible for the credit application review and approval.

  • What interest rate does Bancoldex offer?

The interest rate will depend on the type of credit and the term that applies to each client’s needs. The interest rate specified by Bancoldex is called the rediscount rate, which is the interest rate Bancoldex charges the financial institution where the client decides to apply for credit. In turn, the financial intermediary includes a few additional points and it is them who determine the final rate for the credit user.

  • If I have been reported to credit bureaus, can I still apply for credit?

Policies to  grant credit are determined by each financial institution. If you are in arrears at the time you apply for credit, you should contact your financial institution directly. They will guide you on how to proceed in this regard.

  • What is Bancoldex’ credit term?

Terms may vary depending on the credit line covering the client’s financial need and considering that the final decision will be evaluated and negotiated between the client and the financial intermediary.
