AKWESASNE – This is something we could all wish for – part of a loan you don’t have to pay back.

It’s come true for Gerald McDonald of Akwesasne after winning the “Best. Loan. Ever.” contest at a local financial resources company.

“Gerald couldn’t believe it when he learned he’d won the full contest prize of $10,000. Gerald plans to use his prize to pay down his loan (and pay off a vacation),” said CitiFinancial in a statement.

The Cornwall branch is run by Jason McAlear.

There were ten winners across Canada from the company’s 34,000-plus entries.
