Plastic Surgery Loans a Hit for Lebanese Bank
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Today's last word in business is plastic, as in surgery, not credit cards.
A Lebanese bank is making it easier to get the body you've always wanted - that's a quote - by offering a new line of plastic surgery loans. Clients can receive anywhere between $1,000 to $5,000 to cover plastic surgery, orthodontic procedures and other nips and tucks. So far the bank has received more than 200 phone calls a day about that loan.
