Why Should You Attend
organizations extend credit to borrowers when the borrowers show the
ability to repay the loans extended. Ideally, a request for a five-year
loan should be supported by a 5-year cash flow projection and a request
for a seasonal line of credit should be supported by a 12-month cash
flow projection to identify when the borrower is likely to borrow and
when the borrower can repay the line of credit in full.
