So he decided to seek a loan from Integral which will allow him to purchase wholesale seed corn, insecticide, fertilizer and some work tools. Santos is certain that he will be able to make the necessary profit in order to pay off the debt. He has never had any experience with credit but he possesses good references from those who know him and the support of his family. He knows that in this way he will be able to bring financial security to his home.
