D. Anecdote

Calyssa, from Binger, was looking for an affordable loan to purchase a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. She struggled to get her daughter Sienna, who has cerebral palsy, in and out of her existing vehicle. The ABLE Tech Financial Loan Program helped Calyssa purchase a van that allows her to continue to take Sienna and her siblings to parks, school, and appointments safely. Calyssa said, “No one else would finance this vehicle at a reasonable rate. I am forever grateful for this life-changing program.” The ABLE Tech Financial Loan Program’s low, 5% interest rate can help to make needed assistive technology purchases affordable. To apply for a loan, go to the ABLE Tech Financial Loan webpage or visit the Oklahoma Assistive Technology Foundation’s (OkAT) website.
