Raúl is a man who is very devoted to his work, willing to give everything he has to be able to reach his goals. The most important thing to him in life is his family. In the last few weeks the deterioration of the house has taken the peace out of their home atmosphere. The house needs repairs and he wants to do them as soon as possible, to insure the safety of his home. His greatest secret is perseverance, he knows that this is the key to success. He needs to invest in home repairs, but does not have sufficient capital to do so. This is why he has requested a loan through INTEGRAL. The loan he has requested will allow him to buy cement, bricks, wood, tools, etc. Raúl has a good credit history and takes full responsibility for paying the loan back. He has faith that he will be able to provide a better quality of life for his family.
