ems the most secured form of raising enough money to start the business, but in case the price of the assets suddenly drops, it may be practically impossible to get enough capital for the organization. Banks, on the other hand, expects that some strict requirements are fulfilled before they could award any loans (Mentre 1984). It is not always possible to secure a loan from banks because the requirements are often many. Therefore, it is better to rely on the sale of assets to raise the needed capital for the commencement of the organization. The assets that would be sold to obtain this capital include a block of flat and a six-month-old salon car.

Task 4 (The Cost of Finance): The cost of finance for the sales of my asset is, in principle, the total expenses made in the course of selling them. Below is the exact cost of finance that came up during the selling processes:
The cost of finance shown above is moderate compared with the cost I would have paid to obtain similar amount of loan from a bank or other financial institutions. Even though the
