Would you grant the loan? Why or Why not?

As the loan officer, it is clear that the company’s financial position is not much stable and it would not be able to pay back the amount to the bank. So if I were the loan officer, I would not have granted the loan  to the Anandam company, as the bank would have been exposed to risk that and there would have been high uncertainties that whether the company would be able to return the bank’s amount or not. Although the company is planning a bright future,but the current figures show that the company is not in a good condition, placing questions over its ability to pay back the loan amount

Strength and Weakness Analysis of Anandam Company


  • It is a good standard clothing firm.
  • The firm sells advanced designs of children's clothing.
  • Amandan company has skilled labor work force.
  • Amandan company has 12 years’ experience in the textile industry.


  • Amandan company does not have a good strong plan to improve its receivable collection period or its inventory turnover period.
  • The firm does not ship the products directly to the customers.

I would recommend that Anandam building-firm should-improve its Account Receivable as soon as it can,because if it improves its Account Receivable ratio then it can get money much faster, which would enable the company to pay its suppliers, increasing the company’s stability.


I would also like to recommend the company to give importance to its assets turnover into the cash account, and it should also look at its Receivable collection period very carefully. Low collection time increases the risk of bankruptcy

In addition to this, the company can use on-time billing so that the customers can earn money quickly and prevent any delays in collection.

The company can use a well-developed loan system portal so that it could keep the track record of its due payable amount. This will help keep the company in being updated and in keeping its financial and debt values stable.........................
