Dozens rallied in the San Mateo County Center Thursday evening in preparation to march to Chase Bank to demand that they give a 72-year-old woman a loan modification.
Redwood City resident Gloria Takla faces a foreclosure on her home April 9 if she cannot pay $2,600, a substantial increase from the $1,500 monthly payment the bank said she would owe when she first secured the loan.
Though the protestors could not enter the bank, Takla and her daughter were let inside and spoke with several employees. Though Takla didn’t receive an extension, she was given the contacts of several Chase employees who wielded much more authority than the employees at the Redwood City branch.
“They seemed happy with the progress that was made,” said James Lee of Occupy Redwood City.
