JimEastongot a Commerce Bankplan loan and separated the boys from the boys. Jim had four rambunctious boys and only one room for them to sleep in. Now, he needed to turn the TV room into another bedroom. His first move was to the Commerce. Where he asked for a Bankplan loan. We sat down with Jim and found out how much furniture, rugs, and re-decorating the room would cost. Then we set up a monthly repayment plan that his budget could afford. This kind of planned personal service is why we call it a Bankplan loan. Whether you need money to make room for an expanding family or to plan for the education of a teenage daughter or son, we'd like to help with a carefully worked out Bankplan loan.
