Borrower Due Diligence

How will you decide who to endorse as a borrower? What due diligence will you conduct?
Before Staff endorses a borrower, Staff will have conducted a thorough consultation with the interested borrower. Staff will access the interested borrower for loan readiness, which may include a credit report review. In addition, staff will work together with the borrower to formulate a business plan (B.P.) and/or a projection income statement (P.I.S). The B.P. and P.I.S. are tools that will support borrowers business success.
