Tracy, this business plan is good.

It's very good. You've

obviously done a lot of research.

It's very impressive.

And this address where you live,

is this rented property?

That's my mom's house.

It's rented, yeah.

I n the last four years

there's steady employment,

but there's no savings, no capital.

You don't own a car?

No, I've had some debts to pay off.

We do a credit check

on all loan applications

and it is quite colorful

your file, Tracy.

This isn't really really safe estimate.

Did you, did you see these?

We get people coming in

to the shop all the time

asking if we've got internet,

'cause we're so close to the station.

The nearest place is...


Tracy, this is not a personal

decision. This is the bank's policy.

I cannot approve an unsecured line

against someone with your history.


Look, if you can come

back with some collateral

we might be able to talk again.

But the way it's currently

structured I can't approve that loan.




No, no, I won't do it.

No, Ray, I said no.

Hey, Trace.

The manager said the plan was, uhm,
