Existing Debts and Future Obligations

Numerous businesses borrow money in order to cover things such as supplies, payroll, accounts payable, so on and so forth.

Is the business located in a densely inhabited city, or is it situated on the outside border of town? Exactly how might the regional average house earnings influence future revenue potential?
