The Rich Man's Life - Chapter 26
As soon as Ma Dong heard Zhang Wenyan’s words, he felt relaxed. He knew he couldn’t thank him enough for his generosity. The two of them started talking about business again. Before leaving, Zhang Wenyan suddenly asked: “Oh yes, is it ok to take a loan from your bank? I have a friend whose company needs a loan. “
Ma Dong’s eyes moved slightly, and he smiled: “Whether it’s ok or not depends on your friend. What kind of company is it?”
“Have you heard of Shanshui Decoratives? It is known for home decorations and renovations in Luzhou.”
Ma Dong had no money to buy a house before, so he didn’t really pay attention to this kind of company, but since Zhang Wenyan said …
“Well, I have heard a word or two about it. Let him come to my branch tomorrow morning. We’ll talk about the details there.”
As soon as he returned home, Ma Dong received a WeChat from Zhang Wenyan containing contact info. of Wang Yiwen of the Municipal Finance Office, Chen Yibin, General Manager of the Huizhou Branch of Tencent News, and Hou Yong, the boss of the Shanshui Decoratives…
Ma Dong grinned and said, “There really is no free lunch in this world, but this is much better its mutual benefit …”
Zhang Mengmeng was bored while browsing the webpages at home, watching Ma Dong return with a grin on his face, she happily stepped forward and asked, “You came back early. Did something good happen? You look so happy.”
Unexpectedly Ma Dong suddenly launched an attack, like a fierce tiger hunting a lamb. After a bit of foreplay, she went limp and leaned all over him.
“Was it too much?”
Thinking of what Zhou Qianru said earlier, Zhang Mengmeng was embarrassed and thought that she was really becoming a degenerate…
Looking at the blushing and gasping girl in his arms, Ma Dong really wanted to have a taste of her then and there. Although her figure wasn’t equal to Chai Yafei, she was pure and lovely. [TLN: Chai Yafei = Girl he met at the bank in chapter 24]
Carrying Zhang Mengmeng who was weak on knees, Ma Dong grinned and said: “Let me pleasure you first and then I’ll tell you the good news …”
Supporting her sore body, Zhang Mengmeng was surprised, she opened her small mouth and asked: “What? Can I get a job at Tencent News?”
Faced with the fragrant beauty of the spring, Ma Dong’s little brother almost went on a rampage, he started chanting “control control” to suppress it.
“Chick, pay attention to the image, don’t cause trouble …”
“Ah! No peeping!”
“Tell me the truth, can I really go to work?”
Ma Dong raised his head, and said with a stinky face: “Of course, is there something yours truly can’t do?”
“Wow, Dong’ge, you are so amazing!”
The little tigress jumped, and Ma Dong was actually pushed back …
After venturing the valley of love last night, Ma Dong was so tired that his waist almost broke!
Waiting for half-past nine, and ensuring that everyone was doing their job, Ma Dong called Wang Yiwen.
Because Zhang Wenyan notified her in advance, Ma Dong felt Wang Yiwen’s exceptional enthusiasm, “Mr.Ma, you are really lucky to be appreciated by the deputy director. How may I help you?”
Ma Dong greeted her humbly, and then told her about the Wenzhou Chamber of Commerce’s overall credit plan, Wang Yiwen said unnaturally: “Isn’t this a good thing, just in line with the government’s plan, is it difficult to approve?”
Ma Dong once again explained the difficulties of foreign businessmen with bank loans. Wang Yiwen probably understood what he meant: “I will consult with the leader regarding this matter, after all, I am not the decision-maker …”
Putting down the phone, Wang Yiwen brewed some words and knocked on the door of the director’s office.
Jin Pengfei smiled at Wang Yiwen and said, “Xiao Wang, what’s the matter?”
No one would expect this kind of greasy uncle, to be a public official, even Wang Yiwen disliked him, but she still explained the situation, Jin Pengfei laughed joyfully after listening, “This is a good thing, let them prepare the materials, after all, it is our responsibility to convene such meetings to guide the bank in order to support the small and micro businesses … “
Wang Yiwen couldn’t help but roll her eyes, this leader’s ability to reap all the benefits was really scornful.
Jin Pengfei didn’t care what Wang Yiwen thought. He was already having a headache while searching for a bank to cooperate with in order to make some achievements. He didn’t expect a pillow to deliver itself when he wanted to take a nap.
“This matter should not be delayed. We should always be at the forefront of the Luzhou province, let them prepare the documents quickly, and set a meeting after eleven, I’ll leave the timing to you.”
Although she hated this kind of leader who wants to reap free credit, she was still very happy to get things done. With the consent of Director Jin Pengfei and Ma Dong. The meeting time was scheduled for October 9.
With this good news, Ma Dong went to the office of President Li Shengnan.
After listening to his report, Li Shengnan smiled and praised: “Director Ma, you have done a good job. If this project is implemented as planned, our Binhu branch will really turn over the business …”
Looking at Li Shengnan at such close range for the first time, Ma Dong secretly swallowed his saliva, the female banker took care of herself really well. He couldn’t believe that she was in her 30’s!
Exquisite face, with just the right amount of makeup, not only feminine but also with a heroic spirit, she had the aura of a female governor.
In a cut-and-fit beige ol outfit, the pink shirt was parting at the top of her twin peaks, worthy of a woman who had given birth to a child not long ago, so magnificent! [ol = office lady]
Seeing her turn over the credit plan of the Wenzhou Chamber of Commerce, Ma Dong quickly withdrew his covetous gaze and looked at her with respect and admiration.
“I think this plan is okay. You can go back and take the time to enhance it. Is there anything else?”
Ma Dong straightened his body and carefully analyzed the current situation of the per capita households in the marketing department. “Because of the staff change this time, the workload on the marketing department has increased. If the Wenzhou Chamber of Commerce project is completed, there will at least be more than hundred loan customers, which will require the additional recruiting of more than five skilled account managers, so I thought that the sub-branch should be notified as soon as possible to recruit people in advance, after all, there is still an implementation period … “
Li Shengnan pondered for a long time before saying: “All branches within the sub-branch are now short of staff. This recruitment will also focus on social recruitment. If you plan a recruitment plan, I will notify the branch’s recruiting department.
Recruitment wasn’t any difficult for Li Shengnan. As far as Ma Dong knew, she was from a banking family, at least four or five bosses at provincial branches were related to her …
“President Li, there is one more thing to report. The boss from Luzhou Hengcheng Automobile Company who met two days ago wanted to cooperate with our sub-branch to handle the car mortgage loan business. As far as I know, this Hengcheng Company has adequate strength.”
Li Shengnan glanced at Ma Dong, her face was a bit gloomy, “The mortgage of the car industry has always been under President Pang, and it’s not easy to intervene …”
Looking at Li Shengnan’s gloomy and unwilling appearance, Ma Dong was stunned. He only knew that Pang Hailiang and Li Shengnan had a relatively rigid relationship, but he never expected that a deputy governor (Pang Hailiang) could actually isolate the lead governor(Li Shengnan) from his sphere of influence!
‘It seems that I have to reconsider Pang Hailiang’s strength. Fortunately, it is still in an acceptable range, otherwise, Li Shengnan may not have been able to keep him …’
While Ma Dong was thinking carefully, Li Shengnan added, “President Pang is in charge of the majority of the business, but after all, the annual performance is good, so I can’t make him rest home for good…”
Li Shengnan’s tone of speech was very calm, but Ma Dong felt a chill run down his spine. The thoughts of this beautiful bank president were not so simple!
For Pang Hailiang, whose strength may exceed his imagination, Ma Dong shouldn’t offend him and strangle his career. It was better for him to make money in the bank quietly, and there was no need to be involved in the internal power struggle of the bank.
Pretending not to understand her, Ma Dong could only say sorry to Lu Heng in his heart …
As soon as he returned to his office, he saw a middle-aged man in a thick black suit and leather shoes sitting on the sofa.
“Are you President Hou of Shanshui Decoratives?”
The middle-aged man grinned, stood up, and introduced himself: “Hello Director Ma, I am Hou Yong indeed from Shanshui Decoratives. I’m here today to trouble you for help.”
Looking at the brave man with a sense of oppression at least 1.8 meters in front of him, Ma Dong’s eyes twitched slightly, and thought ‘he is indeed the boss who is engaged in engineering and decoration business!’
The office had a lot of eyes, Ma Dong said: “Hello President Hou, let’s go to the meeting room for a chat …”
There were no outsiders in the meeting room. Ma Dong asked directly and Hou Yong too answered directly, without any muddy water, and within ten minutes, Ma Dong understood the basic functioning of Shanshui Decoratives.
Based on Hou Yong’s explanation, Ma Dong judged that the Shanshui Decoratives operation was quite good. At least there was no shortage of business, but there was a lack of money to invest. After all, it is necessary to have funds for advanced equipment…
“Is there a real estate mortgage?”
“There is a building, about 2,000 square meters, which is used by our company.”
“How much does Mr.Hou want to borrow?”
Hou Yong narrowed his eyes and smiled, “Of course, the more, the better …”
Ma Dong laughed and replied: “Every boss thinks so …
So, I will let the account manager contact you to evaluate how much the property is worth and how much we can sanction.”
Ma Dong’s promise was very refreshing, Hou Yong too was naturally very happy, he had to pull him out for a meal at night, but Ma Dong refused politely, he really did not feel his appetite rising with this tough boss Hou, so he declined: “Hou, I really have something to do today, so let’s wait for the loan to be sanctioned. I will call on Director Zhang and everyone will get together …”
Hou Yong saw Ma Dong’s resolve, so he didn’t persuade him anymore, and he left after giving his contact information.
In the afternoon, Ma Dong made some changes regarding the materials of the Wenzhou Chamber of Commerce in his office and drafted a recruitment notice. The time passed quickly. When he was about to get off work, the personal loan department informed Ma Dong of a sudden important meeting.
He was about to get off work, Ma Dong’s face turned sour, “Tch, this Pang Hailiang’s brain is perverse, and who sets up a meeting after work!”
After shaking his head, he proceeded to the meeting room, he found that the scale of the meeting wasn’t small at all. Several directors of the branch, such as the personal loan department, and car loan department arrived.
He randomly found a seat and listened to Pang Hailiang talking about retail work. Ma Dong was feeling sleepy after a while, so he took out his mobile phone and began to bury his head to play games.
“Director Ma, Director Ma!”
Pang Hailiang exacerbated his voice and shouted several times before Ma Dong responded, “Oh, President Pang?”
Looking at Ma Dong’s dazed face, several young account managers couldn’t help laughing.
“Sure enough, young and inexperienced, too insensible! How can someone laugh at this time? Isn’t this tantamount to not leaving the president any face?”
Ma Dong was speechless for a while. Sure enough, when he looked at Pang Hailiang, his face was green …
Ma Dong promised that his actions were not intentional, but Pang Hailiang didn’t think so, he gritted his teeth, glared at Ma Dong, and said: “Director Ma, you haven’t even completed seven of the eight small indicator tasks in your marketing department. Yet you still have thoughts of playing games? “
Ma Dong didn’t like his tone. Besides, there were so many people in the conference room, even he as a leader didn’t want to lose his face!
“President Pang, it was only tasked at the end of the September month and there are still three months before the deadline!”
Pang Hailiang’s eyes flashed with a sinister glint, as he said: “It seems that Director Ma is very confident in completing the tasks. It just happens to be that Fangxing Avenue has two tasks that are very difficult. The marketing department is so rich in resources, it should be shared. Even if it’s a part of your marketing mission … “
The scene was surprisingly quiet. Ma Dong looked at Pang Hailiang and the director of Fangxing Avenue again, as if he understood something.
