I am interested in knowing whether you are allowed to get a loan while receiving unemployment benefits from the RAV. Has anyone tried this? What happened?

As a rule, Swiss lenders normally do not provide loans to people who are not employed.

Peer-to-peer (p2p) lending platforms provide an alternative to conventional lenders. These let you appeal directly to private investors who may provide the loan if they are confident in your ability to repay it.
