I've seen this kind of problem with BindLex when I accidentally had a  
'my $var' twice
for the same variable. But that's not a problem in your code.

I would try moving 'my @loans' out of the if/else:  declare @loans  
outside of the if/else and just assign to it inside them.

I think that these kinds of issues are part of the reason that we're  
advised not to use BindLex...
