Following submission of your application you will be contacted by a member of our screening committee who will mentor you through the process of applying for, receiving and paying back your loan. During this meeting, we will assist you in completing a monthly budget worksheet.
When all documents have been received and after meeting with an OMF mentor your loan will be submitted to the Screening Committee for approval. It can take up to two weeks to get a decision although it is usually faster.
If your loan is approved, you will be asked to meet again with your mentor to receive your check, sign final documents and make arrangements to repay your INTEREST FREE Loan. A monthly repayment schedule will be included in the agreement. Loans must be repaid within 24 months.
- If you encounter unexpected problems with repayment, contact your mentor and a revised payment agreement may be arranged.
- When repayments are complete, you may request a letter that can be used to help establish your credit.
