    Why do loans take long to be approved while the days for the loan funding are reducing on a daily basis, , the process should be fast

      I think that the countdown should be suspended until the loan proposal has been approved for placement in "Browse Projects". I've made the suggestion, but I don't know yet if it's something the Technical Team would be implementing. I hope so, though, because it doesn't seem fair to have the clock ticking when the proposal isn't even visible yet for lenders to fund.

        Perfect proposal Laurie.
        After ten (10) days of my loan application listed among the waitlist, finally, it is now pending review by Zidisha staff and once approved, it will be available for lenders to fund.
        But to my surprise, my loan application, even not published for lenders to fund, only has three (3) days left to expire. Does that mean after it expire, I have to go through the waitlist, then come to Zidisha staff review, then finally publication for lenders to fund?

        I hope not, George, but I really don't know the answer to that. Please see: www.zidisha.org/forum-threa...

        This is a great problem Laurie, the days for fundraising are shorter due to loans not having approved in a timely manner.

        Please also ask the admins to enable us (borrowers) to tag members like it was before eg @julia @Laurie etc so that they can be aware of what is going on.

          I know, John. That's why I mentioned the link above.

          The only admins who have the necessary access for making the type of change you just asked about are Julia (our Director) and Rodrigo (our CTO).

          Dave already has made that suggestion. We just have to be patient...
