The Loan Department / Кредитный отдел
Read Кредитный отдел You are a director in the Loan Department of the First National Bank in Iowa (assets: $ 1 billion). Now the country is in the midst of economic recession and interest rate are high, but the number of loan applicants is increasing each month. It is your responsibility to decide which of the applicants are good risks and which are not.

1. The main purpose of the bank is to make money, but it does try to maintain the image of a responsible community member.

3. You can loan part or all of the loan request.
