If you’re looking for a feel-good movie, and happen to have Netflix, check out “Bank of Dave.” It’s a David and Goliath story of Dave Fishwick, a self-made millionaire and seller of mini-vans who, when banks “would make loans to people who didn’t need them and refused those who did, and paid multi-million dollar bonuses to their executives,” began lending his own money to them personally. Loans that he made helped restaurants, allowed businesses to expand, helped people cover funeral expenses, and helped create more than 150 new jobs in the small town of Burnley, England. Dave’s fight against established banking institutions to make financing available to people with less than perfect credit, is inspiring, and while the topic sounds dull, the story is fascinating.
The movie begins with a statement that the Story is True(ish), yes, the details have been embellished, but the main story of Dave and the Bank (actually a Savings and Loan) is true and to date, has loaned out 30 million pounds ($38,160,000 US Dollars) to people in the area.
