We have a list of Latin American banks that we would like to contact to ask questions regarding their ability to provide loans to refugees. Candidates must be bilingual in English and Spanish.
We have multiple refugees with World Passports issued by the World Service Authority. Many of these refugees have some financial standing in their home countries (a few thousand USD on average), but seek some sort of financial assistance in their relocation to start businesses, purchase homes, etc.
We need a bilingual finance professional to contact our list of banks and ask:
- What banks will accept the World Passport and other WSA documentation as the only form of documentation provided?
- What is the average loan amount that can be obtained a) without any proof of finances, b) with proof of finances and money transfer and c) downpayment or secured loan amount?
- What is the average interest rate for these loans?
- Are there grants available for starting new businesses for WSA document holders?
- What is the process for obtaining these loans or grants?
We have a group of about 50 refugees that we are coordinating assistance for and would prefer to move them all to the same country / location, but we need to ensure the new financial climate will make it possible for them to secure either micro-loans, loans from a bank, or grants. We are focusing on Latin America right now as the region of preference.
It sucks when your state denies you official documents and we're trying to make the transition to a new country easier. Thanks to the WSA, we are able to provide documents to these refugees. We need your help to get them on their feet in a new country!
If you want to go above and beyond, we're looking to help with long-term residence and citizenship status, so pulling that for the countries with these flexible loans will be excellent!
Thanks for your support and help!
