With the help of their friends, they collect an amount of $158,000. Fermín and Lidia travel to the neighbor town in order to put the money into a safe because they don't have a bank in Alsina. Alvarado, who is bank manager, convinces Fermín to put the money into his own bank account to accelerate the purchase of silo.
