An armless man in Zhengzhou, China, was denied a loan for his wedding flat by multiple banks because he could not provide fingerprints.
25-year-old Wu Jianping lost his arms after receiving a severe electric shock at the age of five, reports the People's Daily Online.
Bank employees told Wu on November 14 that without fingerprints, a signature would not be enough.
Wu submitted a housing loan application with several banks on November 14. He was hoping to buy an apartment to live in with his fiancee after their wedding.
He was later told by all of them that he had been denied due to the fact he was unable to provide fingerprints.
Wu managed to sign the application by holding a pen in his mouth.

Why not? Toe and foot prints are unique, same as fingerprints.

In fact¿ it is very likely that the Banks doubt his capibility to pay the loan for his disability. no fingerprint is an just excuse!
