Asking for my husband; 
He would like to apply for an £8,000 loan. On the eligibility tool on here today a couple of providers came out as 95% chance 
Just wondering in the current climate is it worth applying? I don't mean in regards to his job; I mean I presume banks are still lending?

    Lending continues to tighten, so he should get in quick.  However, if he can live without borrowing at the present time, that would be the smart option.
