Step 2: Explanation of solution

When a bank lends money, it checks the four C's of credit.

Complementary (business assets which can be liquidated in case of non payment),

Capital (the owner's money, cash, and personal possessions), Capacity (the ability to repay money), and Character (good credit rating)

This is a crucial checklist for determining a company's legitimacy. If the company is unable to repay the loan, the bank will suffer a significant loss. To avoid a bad situation, banks prefer to lend to well-established businesses that can meet all of the criteria.
