Borrower Due Diligence
How will you decide who to endorse as a borrower? What due diligence will you conduct?
I will decide to endorse borrowers based on the personal relationships I have with that business and emerging or successful businesses that are located within the District I represent that are a positive addition to the broader community. I will also welcome individual businesses and entrepreneurs located within the district I represent to request that I endorse them as a borrower.
This is the type of organization that the Trustee is.
What are Trustee tiers?
Trustee tiers determine the number of endorsements a Trustee can make and what loan sizes they can endorse. All Trustees begin as a pilot and can advance in tier depending on their borrowers' repayment performance.
