This research raises a company that knows the cash requirements to purchase capital equipments in order to satisfy the demand for the products of each of the proposed scenarios. The company is negotiating with credit institutions a series of loans at different interest rates. Also, the company can make capital increases. A model focused on the financial needs using scenarios allows us to combine funding sources to cover the costs of the acquisition of production equipment to meet the demand for each scenario. This combination remunerates own financing, settles interest and repays the borrowed capital. The results indicate that the model is robust and minimizes the financial cost of a possible combination of external and internal sources in each possible scenario.
