    Q: We intend to open up a fix deposit acc as a group. I c ur interest rates is13.00%if the money is to bfixed for 1year. This confuses me a little, is the 13% a monthly benefit for the duration of 1year? or that 13% is the benefit for the whole year's savings? I mean without considering the month?
