How does a short term loan from MiFinance work?

Customers can apply for this loan online and select any amount between $500 and $2,000. When someone submits their details, their criteria will be assessed and they'll be approved for an amount based on their income and expenses. The bank details required from the applicant will usually be sufficient to verify their income, but sometimes a call will be made to their employer. If someone is approved, their loan will be deposited straight into their bank account. Transfer times may vary depending on the loan customer's bank.
