Consumer Debtor Financial Statement: the First Step to Debt Repayment on the Loan
Every time we have to take out a bank loan, we calculate our ability to repay this loan. Unfortunately, things do not always go the way we planned. There are times when we are unable to repay part of the loan and to meet its obligations.

In response, the bank may offer an individual payment program to the debtor experiencing problems with loan repayment.
