Episode 120: The bank manager
Manager: So, why should the bank lend you this money?
Tim: Well, I've been saving here for almost five years.
Manager: But haven't you been unemployed recently?
Tim: Yes but I've been living on my savings, not using an overdraft. I'm a reliable customer and I think my new business is an excellent investment. A business loan would be good for me and good for the bank.
Manager: Well your current account does look healthy, that's true. What about credit cards? Do you rely on plastic much?
Tim: I've got one but I always pay off my balance every month.
Manager: Well let me look at your proposal in more detail and I'll get back to you soon.
