1. Rework/simplify "suggest a lender" and "financial institution
login" and registration.
It will be one link "add a lender to RateZip". In case user is not registered, he will be redirected to registration page, and after registration, user will directly come to "add a lender" form. In case user is logged in, he will see "add a lender form".
For users who are already add the lender, "add a lender" link will not be shown.
