Mortgage Network Inc.
, which does business in New Jersey as MNET Mortgage Corp. and is one of the largest mortgage lenders in the eastern U.S., recently partnered with Habitat for Humanity
to build a new home for a deserving Plainfield, N.J. family.
Seven Mortgage Network employees from the company’s Danvers, Mass. and Florham Park, N.J. branches joined Habitat for Humanity of Greater Plainfield and Middlesex County to help build a single-family home in Plainfield. When complete, the home will be presented to the family with an interest-free mortgage.
