I am new to Sharepoint.

I am trying to create a site which has a list that stores loan information. The loan approval process is done by an Approval Workflow. I need to validate whether the person was approved a loan in the past year or rejected in the past six months. How do I do it?

I don't think you can use designer (assumption based on tags), Sharepoint custom list validation.

I would use jQuery and .blur on $('div[title^=People]') (given it is a people picker), then use Client Object Model to do the validation.
