The only condition must be that the car is in the U.S while being financed, and that you receive a salary from one of the organizations we have institutional agreement with (CAF, OAS, IICA, IADB, ICHR, CATIE).

    We recommend that, since making those monthly payments are already part of your budget, that you set up the “automatic transfer” function to deposit those funds into your savings account and without having to worry about the monthly due date of the loan.
