After graduating college and landing a job that has turned into a career, I set a goal for myself to build a forever home to raise my family. My Journey began to improve my credit score; I began working with Gracie Briones, Financial Education Training Coordinator with SRFSI. Gracie pulled my not so terrific credit history and right away had a plan of attack to improve my credit for a home loan. After two years of paying off bad debt, I was confident to meet with Michael Campos, SRFSI Loan Administrator. Mr. Campos ran the numbers and came back with a loan amount and down payment. After setting up the IDA saving account, I made it a personal goal to make and exceed the monthly saving goal amount. After a year of sacrifice from saving extra income, I reached my IDA Saving Goal and was approved! SRFSI staff gave me the tools, knowledge, and encouragement to make my home a reality. Thank you SRFSI!
