I was so irritated today!
I needed to apply for an educational loan, and I chose the one offered at Employees Welfare Fund (EWF), because for the amount I was looking for, if offers the lowest interest rate, i.e 5%.
My mum gathered all the information needed over the past few weeks and we had all our documents ready, at least, we thought we had everything. We also had to look for 2 guarantors, who work in the public sector (Required as per loan conditions). pff.
Damn, I work in a private company, it was really difficult to find these 2 persons, but I finally got 2 volunteers. Why do they need such conditions? Don’t they have faith in employees from private companies?
They had to provide some confidential data about them ; payslip, birth and marriage certificates, proof of address, identity cards etc. We got everything photocopied, for most of them. I took all those documents and went to the EWF office, found in Moorgate House, Sir William Nandos Street, Port Louis.
Being there for the first time, I took the wrong lift, the one dedicated to staff but the persons in the lift were kind enough to let me use it. Once in front of the agent, she politely asked me for the required documents. I had most of them, but still, I lacked a few of them. She told me that I needed to bring new birth certificates.
WTF? I already had the new A4 formats of the birth certificates. You know, the dull printed one (btw, the old and large one was so much more pleasing.) She insisted that they needed a recently issued birth certificate.
To the people who take the decisions : How damn does it affect you if my birth certificate has been issued 2 months ago or 4 months ago?
As far as I know, it is not like a morality certificate! On the top of that, I needed to make my kind guarantors to apply for new birth certificates too! Outraged, I tried to remain calm. I left their office calmly and took a final decision : No need to take any loan there, you bloody s*ckers!
I did not
wentgo there to beg for money!
I was going to pay you your full amount + interest!
