Applying for finance – example

Robert is applying for finance to help him open a new hardware store in Glenfield. The bank expects him to know his business environment.

With help from our Information Centre staff, he determines who his market is, and finds out how many owner-occupied households are in the area. There is no charge, as we sourced the data from our free online tool NZ.Stat.

After identifying a sizeable potential market he now has a strong case to present to his bank manager.
