Banking in the Renaissance
By Sharon Fabian

1     Banks are useful places. Located in suburbs, towns, and cities, banks are easy to find wherever you live. Nearly everyone uses them as a convenient way to take care of their finances.
2     They provide checking accounts - very useful for paying bills. They also provide savings accounts, used by parents and children, too. A quick visit to the teller at your local bank is all that is needed to deposit or withdraw money.
3     Some people have specialized accounts at their bank such as a Christmas account or a savings plan for their retirement.
4     Many people use banks to borrow money for big purchases like the mortgage on their house or a loan for a car. The credit and debit cards that many people use every day come from a bank, too, even though it may be a bank far away from their neighborhood.
