Congrats to our newest Kirk Road CLT homeowners Gilberto Bonachea and Moriama Toledo. Gilberto and Moriama came to the United States with a dream for a better life and on May 20, 2019 they took a step forward when they purchased their first home through the CLT of PBC. They both were so excited about the beautiful home they were buying; they could not even sleep the night before the closing. For three years, the family worked hard to establish their credit and save the needed funds for their home. The reason they wanted to buy this home on Kirk Road, was the professional quality that the CLT provided in service and houses for first time homebuyers.
Now that the Gilberto and Moriama have reached this goal, they are planning for the next phase in their lives. First, they are now focusing on having the space they need to spend time with their family and especially their grandchildren. They are also looking forward to having their parents come to visit from Cuba. Lastly, they both want to obtain their citizenship for the country they call home and have rooted themselves to with their home. In their own words, “this is for us the American Dream.”
Thank you to our partners at Palm Beach County Housing and Economic Sustainability, Palm Beach County Housing Finance Authority, and the Citi/Grounded Solutions Network CLT Accelerator Fund!
