                         RECEIVABLES TRANSFER AGREEMENT

     RECEIVABLES TRANSFER AGREEMENT, dated as of September 23, 1994, among ALCO
CAPITAL RESOURCE, INC., a Delaware corporation  (the "Transferor"), as
                                                      ----------      
transferor and initial Servicer (as defined herein), TWIN TOWERS INC., a
Delaware corporation (the "Transferee"), as transferee, and DEUTSCHE BANK AG, a
                           ----------                                          
banking corporation organized under the laws of the Federal Republic of Germany
("Deutsche Bank"), acting through its NEW YORK BRANCH ("DBNY"), as agent for the
  -------------                                         ----                    
Transferee (in such capacity, the "Agent").  Unless otherwise indicated,
                                   -----                                
capitalized terms used in this Agreement are defined in Appendix A.
                                                        ---------- 

                                   Background
                                   ----------

     1.   The Transferor has, and expects to have, Pool Receivables in which the
Transferor intends to transfer an undivided interest.  The Transferor has
requested the Transferee, and the Transferee has agreed, subject to the terms
and conditions contained in this Agreement, to acquire from the Transferor such
undivided interest, herein referred to as the Transferee's Interest, in one or
more Transfers from time to time during the Reinvestment Period.

     2.   The Transferor and the Transferee also desire that, subject to the
terms and conditions of this Agreement, certain of the daily Collections in
respect of the Transferee's Interest be reinvested in Pool Receivables so that
the Transferee may maintain its Transferee's Investment fully invested in
uncollected Pool Receivables.

     3.   The Transferee expects generally to fund its Transfers and
Reinvestments through the issuance of Commercial Paper Notes.  The Transferee
has entered into a Liquidity Agreement providing for the making by the Liquidity
Banks of loans secured by the Transferee's Interest in the event the Transferee
is unable to fund its Transfers or Reinvestments pursuant to this Agreement by
the issuance of Commercial Paper Notes or otherwise prefers to fund such
Transfers or Reinvestments under the Liquidity Agreement rather than by the
issuance of Commercial Paper Notes, or is unable to pay such Commercial Paper
Notes at maturity from its share of collections on Pool Receivables.  The
Transferee has also entered into an Enhancement Agreement with the Enhancement
Bank providing for the issuance of a letter of credit to a trustee for the
holders of Commercial Paper Notes, and for the making of loans to the
Transferee, to provide funds for the payment of Commercial Paper Notes in the
circumstances described above when funding is not available under the Liquidity
Agreement.

     4.  The Transferee has appointed DBNY as its agent to perform certain
administrative duties for the Transferee, including, among other things, the
arrangement of the transactions provided for hereunder, the administration of
the funding of such transactions and the making of certain determinations
hereunder and in connection herewith.

     NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual agreements
herein contained, the parties hereto agree as follows:

                                   ARTICLE I

     interest in the Pool Receivables and Related Property.  Each of the initial

     Collections in respect of the Transferee's Interest to be paid to
     Transferor for reinvestment in the Pool Receivables and Related Property.

               be applied to reduce the Transferee's Tranche Investments of the
               Rate Tranches having the shortest remaining Yield Periods first)
               would result in the Transferee's Percentage being no greater than

     reduced to zero),

          (ii)  the Transferor shall use reasonable efforts to attempt to choose
     a reduction amount, and the date of commencement thereof, so that such
     reduction shall commence and conclude in a single Yield Period with respect
     to a Rate Tranche, and

          (iii)  such proposed reduction shall be applied, unless the Agent
     shall consent otherwise, to the Rate Tranche with the shortest remaining

otherwise agreed between such Persons, and subject to Section 3.02(d), the Agent

the Transferee, (ii) the Transferee makes an assignment of the Transferee's
Interest (or such portion) to Deutsche Bank or any Affiliate of Deutsche Bank as
permitted under Section 12.01(b), and (iii) in the opinion of the Agent, the

Transferee's Interest (or all portions thereof, and Collections with respect
thereto, which are owned by the Transferee), and all other rights and interests
of the Transferee in, to or under this Agreement or any other Transaction
Document.  Without limiting the foregoing, upon such notice such Collateral
Agent may request the Servicer to segregate the Transferee's allocable share of
Collections from the Transferor's allocable share in accordance with Section
                                                                     -------

     defense based on such Receivable's or the related Contract's not being a
     legal, valid and binding obligation of such Obligor enforceable against it
     in accordance with its terms), or any other claim resulting from the sale
     of the merchandise or services related to such Receivable or the furnishing
     or failure to furnish such merchandise or services;

          (vii)  any failure of the Transferor, as the Servicer or otherwise, to
     perform its duties or obligations in accordance with the provisions of

     or Related Property or in any goods which secure any such Pool Receivables.

     (b) Contest of Tax Claim; After-Tax Basis.  If any Indemnified Party shall
         -------------------------------------                                 
have notice of any attempt to impose or collect any tax or governmental fee or
charge for which indemnification will be sought from the Transferor under

imposition or collection of any such tax, governmental fee or charge.
Indemnification hereunder shall be in an amount necessary to make the
Indemnified Party whole after taking into account any tax consequences to the
Indemnified Party of the payment of any of the aforesaid taxes and the receipt
of the indemnity provided hereunder or of any refund of any such tax previously
indemnified hereunder, including the effect of such tax or refund on the amount
of tax measured by net income or profits which is or was payable by the
Indemnified Party.

hold an Indemnified Party harmless, then the Transferor shall contribute to the
amount paid or payable by such Indemnified Party as a result of such loss,
claim, damage or liability in such proportion as is appropriate to reflect not
only the relative benefits received by such Indemnified Party on the one hand
and the Transferor on the other hand but also the relative fault of such
Indemnified Party as well as any other relevant equitable considerations.
