Installment loans are a way to make repaying larger loans easier for some Fido customers. Customers eligible for installment loans will have this option in the app to choose multiple payments, instead of 1 payment that is due in a month.
Fido offers up to 6 months of installment options. This means that instead of repaying the entire loan after the usual one-month period, Fido will divide your loan repayment into small equal amounts. Hence, you pay a small part of the loan each month over the installment period (1 to 6 months) you have chosen.
Note that, it does not mean you will repay the entire loan after the period you choose, but it means each month you will pay a part of the bigger loan.
