9 Endeavor America s Credit Philosophy Endeavor America credit philosophy is to offer loan programs with minimal overlays to our clients.

All prudent factors have been weighed and evaluated on the loan file and no reasonable doubt remains about the borrower s ability to meet the terms of the loan.
