The objective of this study is to identify the determinants of policy bank lending in the context of Yemen. To achieve this goal, attempt was made to model the probability of lending investment companies Yemenis through a number of explanatory variables included in the multivariate model (model discriminant analysis) and a model of artificial intelligence (artificial Neural Network). To empirically study this problem, forty (40) cases of actual investment credit were collected from eight banks in Yemenis (28 and 12 cases of agreement of rejection). The two models have highlighted the importance of non-financial factors including the guarantees (in the form of real estate) with the registration of these guarantees to finance revenue or conservation land by type of guarantee. Also, it was noted that the analysis by artificial neural networks allowed us to have a clearer and precise element that can predict the credit decision. Comparison of the two models in terms of predictability in lending shows the superiority of the performance art "neuronal" compared to discriminant analysis.
