Jalicia is a 30-year-old single mother who lost everything in Hurricane Harvey—and then lost a second car in Tropical Storm Gordon! After living in shelters in the Houston and Dallas areas, she was finally back in Port Arthur with an apartment, a car and a job. Then came Gordon on Labor Day weekend of 2018. Jalicia’s car was in the parking lot of her apartment complex and was totaled in the flood.
When we met Raul, he was taking the bus or ride-sharing to work. He completed a budget, saved for a down payment, and began working on improving his credit with one credit card. He purchases one budgeted item with the card each month and pays it off completely. With those accomplishments achieved, we were able to get Raul into a 2017 Toyota Corolla LE.
“Financing a vehicle, improving my credit, and building better money habits will set me up for my life to come,” Raul says. “As the oldest I am looking toward attending law school, a first in my family. This opportunity with On the Road Lending is going to benefit the next phase of my life.”Return to Meet Our Clients
