  259. 259. Case Examples<br />Let’s <br />Practice!<br />
  260. 260. Question 1: Alejandro Let's Practice!<br />Alejandro Diaz has a used clothing sales business that has eight months in operation and is not yet profitable. <br /> Alejandro is aware of the co-signer requirement. Which of the following individuals would make the best co-signer?<br />His cousin who is also a partner in the business.<br />His actively employed aunt. <br />His uncle who is currently unemployed and living with Michael’s grandmother.<br />
  261. 261. Question 1: AlejandroLet's Practice!<br />If You Chose #1: His cousin who is also a co-owner of the business.<br />Not the best choice…<br />The co-signer needs to be someone outside of the business. The cousin will already be required to sign on as a co-borrower.<br />If You Chose #3: His unemployed uncle who is currently living with Alejandro’s grandmother.<br />Not the best choice…<br />Co-signers must demonstrate that they have the capability to cover the loan payment should the borrower be unable to pay. Additionally, co-signers must be able to demonstrate a minimum of 6 months of stable employment.<br />
  262. 262. Question 1: Alejandro Let's Practice!<br /> If You Chose #2: His actively employed aunt. <br /> This is the best choice!<br /> Alejandro’s actively employed aunt could be an ideal candidate to serve as a co-signer on this loan. <br />
  263. 263. Question 2: AlejandroLet's Practice!<br />Alejandro hasn’t created a formal business plan for his used clothing sales business. What are his options? <br />Business plans are unnecessary for small businesses.<br />Create a list of reasons for which he wants the money and how he will use it.<br />Utilize ACCION USA’s online resources to craft a business plan.<br />
  264. 264. Question 2: AlejandroLet's Practice!<br />If You Chose #1: Business plans are unnecessary for small businesses.<br />Not the best choice…<br />Business plans play an important role in the documents necessary to gain an approval for a loan. <br />If You Chose #2: Create a list of reasons for which he wants the money and how he will use it.<br />Not the best choice…<br />This is a good start, but what Alejandro needs to do is assemble a business plan.<br />
