Ekaterina in her new Elantra!

Congratulations to our sixth successful vehicle purchaser through our Keys to Success program!

Ekaterina had a tree fall on her car last spring and had to purchase a short-term vehicle until she could find a more reliable daily driver. Ekaterina works as a home health aide in addition to caring for her adult son and elderly mother, so finding affordable reliable transportation was very important for her.

Ekaterina saved $2,000 over the course of 9 months while planning for her next vehicle purchase and keeping up with small repairs on her bridge car. With her savings matched dollar-for-dollar, Ekaterina was able to make a significant down payment on a 2018 Hyundai Elantra and secure affordable financing for the vehicle. She is thrilled that she doesn’t have to worry about her vehicle starting up every morning or breaking down in parking lots anymore. She does not think she would have been able to afford such a high quality vehicle without the Keys to Success program.

Thanks to Pawtucket Credit Union and Rhode Island Foundation for their partnership on this great program. And congratulations again Ekaterina!
