Effective July 25, 1980, Lago an-
nounced a series of revisions appro-
ved in regard to mortgage loans un-
der the Lago Residential Mortgage
Plan from the Home Building Founda-
tion. The revisions, which went into
effect on the same day, are as fol-
lows :
The maximum loan permissi-
ble has been increased from 2
years regular earnings/salary
or FIs. 60.000, whichever is lo-
wer, to 3 years regular earn-
ings/salary. or FIs. 100.000,
whichever is less.
The maximum loan repayment
term has been increased from
20 to 30 years.
The employee's equity requi-
rement of 150/o of the building,
purchase, or repair costs, has
been decreased to 10%/.
The mortgage interest rate has
been increased from 6% to
The Lago Residential Mortgage
Plan was initiated on May 1, 1969, to
assist employees in building or buy-
ing their first home or paying off
existing mortgages on their home, or
to make repairs, additions or renova-
tions to their home. Under the plan,
the employee applying for a mortga-
ge loan can obtain his or her own
home designed and constructed ac-
cording to his/her choice and loca-
tion. One key condition for obtaining a
mortgage from the Home Building
Foundation under the Lago Residen-
tial Mortgage Plan is that the house
must be built in Aruba on long-lease

chael y John.

or property land. The house must be
intended for the personal occupancy
by the employee and his family. To
qualify for a mortgage loan, the em-
ployee must have at least two years
of service with the Company.
Over the past eleven years, over
340 Lago employees have taken ad-
vantage of the mortgage loans offer-
ed by the home Building Foundation,
for a total of over FIs. 7.600.000.
With the continuous rise in mate-
ral and labor costs, Lago has increa-
sed the mortgage loan and repay-
ment term to give employees the op-
portunity to build a home of their
choice and to repay the mortgage
loan during a much longer period.
As is the case with any institution
that gives mortgages, care must be
taken to minimize the risk associated
with each case and acceptance of an
application is not automatic. Some
factors that determine whether or not
a person can get a mortgage are total
income, take-home pay, location of
the property, equity, service, earning
potential before retirement, overall
performance on the job, family size,
Following is an example of a mort-
gage loan application which has been
accepted by the Foundation :
John A is 30 years old and wants
to build a house of FIs. 50.000. His
monthly income is FIs. 1900 his
take-home pay is FIs. 1200. His year-
ly income is FIs. 22.800. Three years
at FIs. 22.800 is Ffs. 68.400. John A
has saved FIs. 15.000, which is more
than the required equity of 10%/o
(FIs. 5000). Therefore, he requests a
mortgage loan of FIs. 35.000. He
elects to pay off this loan in 25 years,
which amounts to FIs. 295 per month.
Following is a mortgage loan ap-
plication which has been rejected.

Good housekeeping accomplished

Lago Tug Personnel Boast Accident-Free Record

In 1979 Exxon World-Wide Fleet Safety Contest

When Esso Inter-America invited
Lago to participate in the Exxon
World-Wide Inland and Shallow Draft
Fleet Safety Contest last year, Lago
Management accepted with confiden-
ce. This optimism was based on cus-
tomary safety performance on behalf
of the Lago Tug Fleet personnel. Ne-
vertheless, it came as a pleasant sur-
prise, when in their first year of par-
ticipation in the world-wide contest,
they won the contest with an all-per-
fect record of no-lost time accident.

In a letter to President Jerry Gol-
den, Esso Inter-America President A.
L. Monroe, wrote "Please extend my
congratulations to your Marine Staff
and particularly to the officers and
crews, whose continued efforts contri-
buted so heavily to achieving such a
high level of personal safety. I look
forward to Lago continuing its excel-

I Home Building
(Continued from page 5)
John B is 25 years old and wants
to buy a house of FIs. 60.000. His
monthly income is FIs. 1500 and his
take-home pay is FIs. 900. His an-
nual income is FIs. 18.000. Three
years of his annual income amounts
to FIs. 54.000. John B has saved FIs.
10.000 which is more than the requi-
red equity of 10%/ of the value of the
house or FIs. 6.000. John B has re-
quested a loan of FIs. 50.000 to be
paid off in 30 years at the rate of
FIs. 400.- per month.
This was considered too high in

lent performance in 1980."
Eleven other Exxon affiliates, who
operate fleets similar to Lago's, parti-
cipated in the 1979 Contest.

To measure the safety performance
of each participant, the accident per
million manhours for each participa-
ting fleet was compared. At the end
of the year, the three affiliates with
the lowest accident frequency rates
are the winners in the contest, and
are awarded commemorative plaques
as proof of their achievement.

Sharing this award, are over forty
Lago personnel who are involved in
the daily operations of Lago's tugs
"Esso Oranjestad", "Esso San Nico-
las" and "Esso Santa Cruz".
The corresponding plaque is under-
way from Esso Inter-America, Coral

was counselled to buy a less expen-
sive house.
