    2. Once completed, return the application pack. An interview will then be arranged with a small group of Trustees so you can explain why you require the loan.
    3. Interviews take place in February, May, August and November. Applications are required at least 4 weeks prior to the interview dates.
    4. If successful, you and your guarantors will sign a joint and several bond.
