EFI is excited to announce our new partner family, the Jamal family! This family approached us concerning a special situation with their home. The applied for a government loan but were rejected because they were building an addition to their father’s existing home. The government loan has a requirement that the borrower must own the land the home will be built on. They also have a stipulation that it must be a new build; meaning they will not loan money for an addition or renovation. This disqualified the Jamal family to borrow money from the government. They approached EFI to borrow $5,000 to finish a second story on top of their families existing home. The second story will consist of four rooms (living room, kitchen, & two bedrooms). This will be for Ako, his wife, and their daughter. With an expanded home, they have hopes of expanding their family as well! Please check the family page for more information and pictures on the Jamal family’s home!
