Review and Evaluation
Your loan application package will be reviewed and evaluated by our volunteer Loan Review Committee (LRC) based on the following major factors:
- the quality of the business plan
- the owner’s commitment to ensuring good business management
- the collateral available for the loan
- the number of jobs created or maintained
Interest Rates, Terms, Security and Reporting Requirements
Our loan interest rates, terms, security and reporting requirements are reflective of the level of risk involved and are assessed at the discretion of our volunteer. Generally our interest rates on approved loans range from 6% to 10%. Repayment terms can be customized to meet your business needs and will not exceed 10 years. All of our loans are reviewed annually. Our loans are repayable in full at any time without penalty. In all cases we seek to obtain adequate security to ensure repayment in the event of default. All of our loan clients are required to submit income statements to us regularly, throughout their fiscal year, for the duration of the loan.
