Family is the most important thing for him, so he tries hard to give his family a safe place to live. Over the last few months the house has suffered deterioration and is in need of some repairs. That's why he needs the materials for the project and has requested a loan through INTEGRAL to buy cement, bricks, tiles and tools. Carlos Alexander has a good credit record and is very responsible. He promises to pay back the loan, while also giving his family a better lifestyle.

About Housing Loans
