Toma's successful commercial and credit affairs with his compatriots and nearest neighbours (above all inhabitants of Dubrovnik, merchants of Venice and other Italian towns) have been emphasized; investment of the acquired capital into developed commercial and credit affairs simultaneously, as well as into the real estate property (houses and lands) in Kotor and Serbia; familial circumstances and financial state.
