Kaitlyn Gehle and her son Jaxon had been living in a rental home for a year. Kaitlyn dreamed of owning a home of her own and began working with a local realtor to find a house that she could afford and that Jaxon and she could turn into a home. USDA Rural Development was able to help make that dream possible. Rural Development provided a loan through the Direct Housing Loan program. Kaitlyn purchased a home in Cozad, Nebraska that has a spacious yard so Jaxon can play safely. The home has four bedrooms, one bath and a total area of 1,484 square feet to enjoy.
“I am happy to not travel so far to work and happy about living in a much nicer\safer home than the rental,” said Kaitlyn. “I really like owning a home. I take great pride in homeownership and it is nice to not just give my money away every month to rent and instead put that money towards my investment.”
