Banking has a HUMAN side Both seriously and In fun, bankers are sometimes described as be ing cold. If they do not warm up to every application for credit, the reason is not personal. It is because the money they lend belongs to others and they are bound to take every prcaution for its safety. The other side of the picture is that a banker, by the nature of his daily work, must keep the human touch. He deals all the time with people and with human hopes and problems. His own living depnds on his ability to help. The Human side of a loan When the "banker advances credit to a business man or farmer of course he must be interested in getting the money back. But he is interested also in helping his customer to grow. He is interested in seeing how business and farm development creates jobs and benefits the community generally. The people at this Bank take satisfaction in the fact that funds advanced are helping in so many vital ways. Borrowers use the money for emergencies—such as medical expenses—for education, home and farm improvements, for the purchase of livestock and other needs intimate to their lives.
