Sebagai konsekuensi dari transaksi pertama A memang harus membayar cicilan tersebut perbulan Rp 1juta dalam tempo 10X 1bulan. Dalam hal ini Rp 8 juta sudah ada di tangan A, karena sebetulnya A tidak butuh motor tetapi A butuh duit. Jadi dengan duit cash Rp 8juta A ternyata harus mencicil Rp 1juta dalam tempoh 10 bulan.
