New American Funding Launches Initiatives to Improve Lending Experience for Hispanic Consumers

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

TUSTIN, Calif., May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New American Funding, a national mortgage lender, has announced the formation of its Latino Focus Committee whose mission is to identify and address challenges Hispanic consumers face in their pursuit of homeownership and to enhance the quality of their lending experience.

The formation of this committee was initiated by Patty Arvielo, New American Funding's president and co-founder, who has held a life-long vision and passion to assist the Hispanic community's endeavors and accessibility to homeownership. 

Ms. Arvielo has also spearheaded New American Funding's strong support of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals as a member of its corporate board of governors. The organization works to increase the rate of sustainable homeownership by empowering the real estate professionals that serve the community.

Toward that end, the company also recently appointed Cayce Macias to the position of vice president, community lending, whose goal is to expand New American Funding's community outreach and advocacy efforts, paying special attention to underserved communities.

The Hispanic community is the fastest-growing segment of the American population, and – with the possibility of genuine immigration reform – the market for increased home ownership within their ranks is vast. Historically, lenders and homebuyers have had to overcome serious challenges that still exist today, including language barriers and the lack of educational awareness programs about the home ownership process. 

The Latino Focus Committee is intended to directly confront these challenges with a variety of initiatives and has already begun development on several core outreach elements including Spanish-language educational materials and Spanish-language radio and billboard campaigns. The group has prioritized outreach that is specifically designed to educate the Hispanic community about their home ownership opportunities. 

Arvielo and Macias are united in their vision for the Latino Focus Committee. They intend to bring their extensive experience, passion and cultural awareness to the Hispanic community in order to increase their home buying opportunities and to enlarge their share of the American Dream.
