Using the same method, you can define several loan amount ranges for credit committee approval. In the screenshot above, you can see that admin can approve loan applications up to 100,000, then admin and loan officer jointly up to 1,000,000, and finally CEO only has the right to approve loan applications for loan amounts between 1,000,000 and 10,000,000. Loans exceeding 10,000,000 will not be allowed by the system.
