On the basis of data provided, would you, as a credit manager, continue to sell to D'Leon on credit? (You should demand cash on delivery-that is, sell on terms of COD -but that might cause D'Leon to stop buying from your company.)Similarly, if you were the bank loan officer, would you recommend renewing the loan or demand its repayment?

In hindsight, what should D'Leon have done back in 2004?
