Akiptan continues to have a record demand of applications and while this means that our style of financing and technical assistance is needed, it is also generating a longer waiting period during the application process. However, our staff is doing the best that they can to process all applications in a timely manner, while also making sure that borrowers continue to receive proper technical assistance and beneficial financing. Please know that the timeline is currently a few months out from application submission to the Loan Committee for review. If you have concerns about the timeline of your application, please reach out to your loan officer or email us at
