Sacrifice with bank credit

Banks offer special credits for eid al-adha. Can we offer sacrifice with credit?

Credit means a loan with interest (riba). Interest is one of the biggest prohibitions of Allah. It is not permissible to get a loan with interest even for offering a sacrifice or for going on pilgrimage. Besides, we should not let banks interfere in our religious services.

Those who do not have the means to offer a sacrifice are not obliged to do it. So there is no need to take a loan and distress yourself.
