According to a new report from the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), the number of delisted loan apps has increased from nine to 37. The report also reveals that the number of fully approved loan apps has grown to 164 from 154. However, the number of loan apps with conditional approval has dropped from 40 to 38. Furthermore, the FCCPC’s watchlist has expanded from 20 to 56 loan apps.
