Buying a new car is always a burden to everyone, and this burden is further amplified on fresh graduate. Looking at this situation, UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd (UMWT) will be collaborating with Maybank Islamic Berhad to create a special financing package for graduates who wish to purchase a new Toyota Vios, Yaris, or Avanza.
The new financing package is called the Murabahah Vehicle Term Financing-i (MVTF-i), as the financing package is in accordance with the Murabahah principles, will provide an additional financing option to the graduates besides the Islamic Hire-Purchase (HP) financing in accordance with Al Ijarah Thumma Al-Bai (AITAB). This financing package is only available in Peninsular Malaysia.
Murabahah financing also follows Islamic financing principles and the combined amount financed can be up to 100% with takaful contribution of Takaful bundling and other costs (legal costs, stamp duty, etc).
The financing is available to graduates (degree-holders) who are aged between 21 and 30 years old and are currently employed. The minimum requirement for the application is that they are earning at least RM3,000 a month and have been employed for a minimum of 6 months. For those with less than 6 months of employment, their parents can act as guarantors (subject to Terms & Conditions).
Should their income be less than RM3,000 but more than RM2,000, it is still possible to apply for the financing package provided their parents (as guarantors) have a household income of RM5,000 or more.
