"My family and I recently moved into our home in January, 2022. I made this goal of mine happen by taking Mazaska’s “Financial Literacy Credit When Credit is Due” and “Homebuyers Education” classes.

 

While I was completing these classes I was working on building my credit. Everything was very simple with the help of Stephanie and Amanda. They walked me through each course, helping me to understand what I needed to do to become a homebuyer. I encourage everyone to take this important step to become a homebuyer.

 

My family and I have our forever home and I am very grateful for all the help Mazaska has given me. "
