The Need For This Course
The Primary function of a Bank in particular and a Financial Institution in general is lending i.e. booking of loans. In carrying out this very important function, the Bank must ensure that the credits created will be repaid by the loanees. The process of credit (loan) creation starts with the loan officers establishing relationship on behalf of the Bank with the prospective loan beneficiaries. Care must be taken to ensure that the relationship is strategic (long lasting with mutual benefits to the Bank and Customers).
