Plano, Texas (CNN) “Plano, you are the first city in Texas where we can actually pay for the cost of the home,” says Barbara D’Alessandro, who is taking out a $10,000 car payment for her husband’s car maintenance.
“I want to be able to pay for him to do his work.”
D’Alfonso, who lives in the community of Plano in Plano County, Texas, said the $10k is part of a $100k home maintenance plan she is pursuing with her husband.
“We’ve been working on it for a year, and now we have a plan,” D’Ahncro said.
“We’re going to pay the bills.”
Dahncro and her husband have both struggled financially.
Both are working at restaurants.
The couple was able to buy a $500,000 home last year, but D’Amato says it was just the beginning of the problems.
“The first year we bought this house, we were really living paycheck to paycheck,” D’,Alfaro said.
“We didn’t know what we were doing, and it’s like the house was falling apart.”
D’,Alessaro says she has struggled to get her husband to work on the project.
Her husband says he has gotten into trouble at restaurants for not paying his bills.
“Sometimes they don’t have the money for him, and I just can’t pay him, because he has to go to work,” Dànçero said.
D’Ahlcro says she had no idea the $50,000 maintenance plan would be the impetus for her to start a car payment program, and she is proud of her husband for putting in the effort to get it started.
“It’s been a huge help for us,” Dálalo said.
