Our man in San Pedro Sula helps get the coffee from plantation to percolator. What ends up as a good cup of coffee starts in the hills above San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Growing a good crop and getting it to market at the best possible price is important to the Honduran economy. And lending a hand every step of the way is the man-on-the-spot® in our San Pedro Sula branch. First, working with one of the town's leading exporters, Bank of America provides crop financing to the growers in the hills. After harvesting and processing, a bank affiliate pro vides warehouse facilities for the beans and the exporter receives ware house financing until the coffee is sold. Here again we provide the export financing for the Honduran exporter-and often our European branches provide import financing at their end. It all adds up to a complete financing package handled on the spot by a skilled banker working closely with the customer. If you would like to work with a banker who understands your par ticular needs - and has the resources to do something about them - get in touch with Bank of America. In California, in London, Tokyo or anywhere in the world - we will be happy to join you in a cup of coffee. BANKOF AMERICA 11 Man-on-the-spotservice worldwide.
