An effort to get more Latino immigrants to use banks in Maryland just received a boost.

Wachovia donated $70,000 dollars to Casa De Maryland. The immigrant services group will use the money to teach financial literacy classes.

Casa's executive director Gustavo Torres says many Latino immigrants are distrustful of banks for many reasons.

Eric Kodjanian is the market president for Wachovia in the greater Washington region. He says undocumented immigrants are not their concern.
