Disperse, but when I checked Disburse, it also said to distribute to a
group. Help



My understanding of the two words suggests that neither is right. Disburse means to give out, but is specific to money (so your loan officers may understand the pun). Disperse means to scatter in different directions (of people, animals, etc.) Wouldn't 'Potential Customers Form' do the job better? Unless what you are describing is actually the form on which you write details of the lead and who it was passed to, in which case it's just a Leads Distribution List.
