SINGLE MOM'S DREAM OF HOME OWNERSHIP ATTAINED IN MISSOURI WITH ARRA FINANCING
, Jun 23, 2010 --

Outline of Need: Amy Beery wanted to provide a decent, stable environment to raise her two small children but was unable to obtain financing through conventional means. After several months of receiving the run around from three different lenders, a friend of Amy’s told her to contact the USDA Rural Development office in St. Joseph Missouri.


How Rural Development Helped:
Amy found an appealing low maintenance townhome and financed her home through Rural Development’s Direct loan program

using ARRA Funds.


The Results:
Amy and her family now have a comfortable place to call home. They have a source of stability, a place to retreat and create memories. Their townhome does not require outside maintenance, which simplifies the schedule of their busy life. Amy is excited for the opportunity to raise her children in a wonderful community with highly rated schools and family support, as her parents live up the street. Rural Development is pleased to have provided the financing of Amy’s home through our Direct loan program with ARRA Funds.

“Thank-you to the USDA, I
couldn’t have done this without them.”—Amy Beery, Homeowner
