How MANATI Applications Work

MANATI will do credit and affordability checks to see if the sponsor qualifies for a loan. If “Joint Household Income” was selected, MANATI would then look at the total household income.

They would then review the information submitted during the application. They will then also conduct reference checks, identity checks, employment checks and a final affordability check.

MANATI can provide loans from R30 000 to R120 000.
