(A) Introduction
Logically, there should be no problem obtaining funds from a bank, if only the customer has sensible proposition.

Unfortunately, this is true only as long as the communication between the banker and the customer allows information to be imparted in a form which is understood by them both so that the risks and rewards of the proposal are clearly identified and can be evaluated easily. Whenever there is a loss of clarity in a proposal there is the risk of misinterpretation and uncertainty. The banker’s task is to assess propositions and decide whether they conform to his institution’s appetite for risk and reward.

Many Businessmen, Accountants and Managers have to be aware of the banks’ comprehensive risk management policies and processes that effectively identify, measure, monitor and control their CREDIT risks exposures. Now, the banks will have at the onset determine and restrict their credit exposures to the different types of borrowers and different kinds of banking facilities that will likely affect their capital adequacy ratios.

From experience, it was found that these people usually failed to put their ideas, plans and targets convincingly when they meet bankers to seek for banking facilities.
