Mario didn't understand why no one would help him. Though he had only recently immigrated to the United States, he was a hard worker who provided for his family. He dreamed of owning a home someday...but no one would give him a loan.
Mario's luck turned the day he stepped into the 9 Mile branch of First State Bank. That's where he met Bertha.
Bertha listened to Mario and worked with him throughout the mortgage application process. First State Bank believed in Mario, and with their financial guidance, he was able to purchase his home.
That was nearly 40 years ago - and still today, when Mario thinks of First State Bank, he thinks of home.
