How to Place Guarantee Funds On-Hold?
When specifying guarantors for a loan, this feature allows user to specify what amount of the loan the guarantor stands as guarantee.
There are 2 types of guarantees:
Own Guarantee: One or more of own deposit accounts can act as guarantee.
Others Guarantee: One or more of other clients/members and their deposit accounts can act as guarantee.

Description:

  • Loans are linked to savings account and savings amounts are blocked.
  • The amount of guarantee becomes blocked (on-hold funds) - i.e. client cannot withdraw this amount but will continue to earn interest.
  • If another member stands as guarantee, then funds can be clocked for savings account.
  • As the loan gets repaid, the blocked funds get "released" (i.e. available for withdrawal) accordingly.
  • Guarantor may belong to same group or may be outside the group. On agreeing to be a guarantor, a part of his/her "available funds" can be specified as guarantee and this amount gets "blocked".
  • Guarantor funds gets "released" first, before loan account holder's funds are "released".
  • If loan is rejected, then all guarantees for this loan are released.
