Miati--a 3rd generation Washingtonian--is the proud owner of a home in the Kennilworth neighborhood in Ward 7 in Washington, DC thanks to her hard work, savings, taking advantage of DC's Home Purchase Assistance Program (HPAP) and an Individual Development Account (IDA) with Capital Area Asset Builders (CAAB).
The Role of Hard Work, Saving and CAAB's IDAs in the Launch of a Photography Business in Washington, DC
Dion was able to launch his business thanks to his entrepreneurial vision and hard work and the money from his Individual Development Account (IDA) from Capital Area Asset Builders (CAAB). While Dion had the aspiration of buying professional camera and flash equipment to take high quality pictures at his client events, he was still short of the necessary amount of money to buy the right type of professional equipment. When Dion learned of CAAB's Matched Savings Program he felt it could be the solution to his problem. "I was extremely fortunate to learn about CAAB and the IDAs because it gave me a chance to save, get a match and achieve my goal."
