Many cash first people here also said they would take a 0% interest loan and hold onto the cash in the bank and earn interest.

This way if their business had a down turn there was the money in their savings account to make the payments.

Now a person that takes a loan to buy equipment and does not have money to cover the loan their business may not be able to survive a down turn do to being in debt.

People run their business just as if they were an employee. Earning $100 and spending $100 every week. Then when their salary gets cut they can't meet their loans.
