We Found an Easy Way to Stretch Your Budget During Petsa de Peligro

Here’s an easy way to stretch your budget, even without a credit card.

Every so often, the month creeps into those dreaded three or four days before payday—a phase when your budget starts to run dry and you find yourself scrimping for survival, down to the last peso. It’s called petsa de peligro, and if you’ve ever had to rely on your own salary for more than it’s worth, chances are you’ve seen days like this.

The only real solution is a proper fiscal responsibility, which means you'll have to skip on unnecessary splurges. But when you’re winding down to those last few days and you need to get a little breathing room, don’t worry—Cashalo has your back.

Cashalo is an online loans application—which is a fancy way of saying that it’s a simple, straightforward, and legit way to borrow money through a smartphone app. It gives you the freedom of having a credit card without actually having to apply for one. Once you download the app, it works in five steps:

1. Log in using your mobile number.

2. Input your bank account, work information, government-issued ID, and proof of billing to complete your profile.

3. Choose your loan amount and payment terms.

4. Wait for your loan to be approved.

5. Receive your loan directly through your bank account. The entire process can be as quick as 30 minutes—Cashalo’s minimum time for disbursement. However, processing times may vary and the average is one day or less. Simply put, it's a fast and safe way to squeeze out of a tight spot. 

Cashalo offers low-interest rates (the lowest, outside of banks): 4.95 percent, fixed monthly. Say, you borrow P2,000 for your first loan—pay it back in 15 days at P2,131.48 (a small price to pay if you’re strapped for cash at a bad time).

Of course, this is no excuse to be irresponsible with your money. It’s always best to live within your means and manage your finances accordingly. But everyone gets into tough situations sometimes, for whatever reason. At least now, when you need a helping hand, you know where to find one.
