A high school teacher asked her student to describe a bank. The first student replied, "It´s a place to keep your money." The second said, "It´s a place where you write checks against the money you have on deposit." A third offered, "It´s a place where you borrow money." Each student gave a correct answer. In the simplest terms they described the basic functions of banking: accepting deposits, processing checks and lending money. The students recognized that banks provide a service for those in need of a finance-related product.
Deposit accounts come in many forms. There are savings accounts, checking accounts, payroll accounts, business accounts, foreign currency accounts and trust accounts to name a few. Most offer checking privileges, others only passbook withdrawals. Some pay interest while others do not. Regardless of the type of account, the purpose is basically the same. People find bank accounts are safe and convenient for depositing checks and cash.
The types of borrowing accounts are just as diverse. Banks make loans to individuals to buy such things as cars, furniture, and appliances. They also make loans to business, to manufacturers, builders, merchants and loans to foreign countries.
Banks are different in different countries. In the United States of America, for example, commercial banks come in two main groups: national and state banks. National banks are chartered and supervised by the Federal Government. All nationally chartered commercial banks must hold membership in the central banking system - Federal Reserve System. State banks are chartered and supervised by the state in which they operate. State-chartered banks may join the Federal Reserve System provided that certain requirements are met.

Loans are the flip side of deposit. In fact, the main reason chartered banks put so much effort into building deposits is to have funds available for borrowers. Loans help to fuel the economy. When the owner of a corporation or an individual borrows money to build houses, manufacture appliances, make clothing, buy Christmas inventory or feed beef cattle he/she puts money into circulation. All of these activities create employment, which is generated into production, wages, buying power. Eventually, some of the wages come back to the financial institutions in the form of savings; so lending is really a cyclical activity. Loans are made for a variety of terms and conditions. For example, a sporting goods store owner borrows money early in the winter to buy golf equipment which is sold in the spring. This is a short-term loan and sales receipts are used to repay the loan. Short-term loans are made for a period of less than one year, usually at a fixed rate of interest. There are long-term loans such as mortgage loans where payment may be stretched over a five-year period and repaid from a borrower´s salary or from tenant´s rent.
Mortgage lending arrived on the banking scene in 1954 when the chartered banks were authorized to make mortgage loans. The basic mortgage loan was often made to a bank customer who wanted to build or buy a house. The customer made the required down payment and the bank supplied the rest of the funds using the property as security.
