    The economical condition....

    Please, check one more sentence...
    Eg. The economical situation in this country can't afford to finance personal enterprises.We've already got tenth of statements but no one of them have been financed.

    Neither sentence makes sense. I can guess what you want to say but,rather than do it for you, I'd prefer you to have a go at rewriting them

    A person can afford something, but afford doesn't work with an economic situation.

    "We've already got tenth of statements"

    I'm afraid I can't even guess what that is supposed to mean What are the 'statements' that you have a tenth of?.

    I think the main problem is your choice of words. As 5jj told you, "We've already got tenth of statements but no one of them have been financed" makes no sense.

    I had guessed that. Did you mean "tens of applications" when you wrote "a tenth of statements"?

    Re: The economical condition....

    So,can you write alternative words of "can't afford" and "statement" which can be used in an economic situation?
