Loans are the flip side of deposit. In fact, the main reason chartered banks put so much effort into building deposits is to have funds available for borrowers. Loans help to fuel the economy. When the owner of a corporation or an individual borrows money to build houses, manufacture appliances, make clothing, buy Christmas inventory or feed beef cattle he/she puts money into circulation. All of these activities create employment, which is generated into production, wages, buying power. Eventually, some of the wages come back to the financial institutions in the form of savings; so lending is really a cyclical activity. Loans are made for a variety of terms and conditions. For example, a sporting goods store owner borrows money early in the winter to buy golf equipment which is sold in the spring. This is a short-term loan and sales receipts are used to repay the loan. Short-term loans are made for a period of less than one year, usually at a fixed rate of interest. There are long-term loans such as mortgage loans where payment may be stretched over a five-year period and repaid from a borrower´s salary or from tenant´s rent.
MORTGAGE LOANS
Mortgage lending arrived on the banking scene in 1954 when the chartered banks were authorized to make mortgage loans. The basic mortgage loan was often made to a bank customer who wanted to build or buy a house. The customer made the required down payment and the bank supplied the rest of the funds using the property as security. Payment originally spanned a twenty-five-year period, although recent mortgage loans are more likely to be for a five-year term. Fluctuating interest rates made the short-term mortgage loan
