Step 5: Interview

Your Loan Facilitator will meet with you to review your application. Your meeting may be in person, over Skype or by phone.

Your Loan Facilitator will make sure you have provided the information the Loan Review Team will need to decide if your loan application will be approved, and will answer any further questions you might have. They will also use this time to learn a bit more about you and your employment goals, and see if there are other resources that might be helpful to you.

After your interview with the Loan Facilitator, the Loan Review Team will review your completed application within two weeks. If you are approved for a loan, you can expect to receive funds within a week of your signing the loan agreement documents.
