Does this sound OK?

This bank has/provides/gives out/ different kinds of loans with different interest(s), but in average they give out loans at interest of 10 per cent a year.

The bank has money. It provides loans. (In doing so it gives out money, but that sounds a rather childish way of saying it).


The loans are at different rates of interest.

The focus is different rates (of interest)


On average the interest rate is 10% pa.


The focus is the rate, but here you can put the attributive noun in front.

For financial purposes, rates are in p.a. - per annum, in written text, although in informal speech you would say 'a year'.

On average

This bank provides different kinds of loans at different rates of interest, but on average the loans have an interest rate of 10% pa.

It felt more natural to change the verb of the last part because it is the loans that average 10%. The bank gives all the loans - that is not averaged.

They give loans at an average rate of interest of 10% pa.
