The existing loan practices in the Philippines makes it difficult for us Filipinos to apply for a loan because it entails a lot of our time going back and forth submitting requirements, filling up a lot of forms, submitting documents, collateral, photocopies and sign tons of loan documents.
Personally, I don't believe in loans but there are times that we all need one. Like when I was operated on ruptured brain aneurysm last year, the rupture was so sudden that we were caught unprepared for medical emergency that costs more than a million pesos. So, we had to avail of a loan from my aunt. We were lucky my aunt gave us the money, no question asked. But not everyone have a generous auntie. If I will be getting a loan from the bank, I guess it would take sometimes before they could process my loan and I don't think they will grant me one from my hospital bed, don't you think so?
What will you do, in case you find yourself in a medical emergency? Some people I know ask for loans from government agencies but it takes too long for the loans to be released and the process was so tedious that they are already so stressed-out before they get their loans. So I did a little research on-line and found an institution that could now ease our financial stress. We could now avail of a quick, easy, hassle free loan from Lenddo.
And because Lenddo is new to us I made my own version of FAQ, so we will all understand how this Lenddo thing works.
