Otherwise, you may find yourself running out of cash, which is something you always must avoid. You should have some expectation that the pressure banks are under will change on the upside of any downturn. Consequently, borrowing will eventually become more difficult.

Keep asking until you make the required combination of arrangements to “not run out of cash”!
