    Banks must make monthly valuations of credit portfolios and the portfolios of foreign currency collection and depending on the type of change that is reflected in the monthly period which gives an income or a loss.

    Equity is the difference between assets and holdings of banks (eg loans) less liabilities, which are debts (eg, public deposits). If the dollar drops in a month compared to the previous, the assets are less and these should include that difference as a loss.
