If she is actually paying her mom back a loan, then you should go along with that. Saying it is between her and her mom is not reasonable. Home repairs have nothing to do with the loan question, so that is irrelevant.

If there was no loan, then there is nothing to pay back.

If she is 'pretending' to pay her mom back, and her mom then gives her the money, then don't go along with it.

How you know the difference, I wouldn't know.

she doesnt have a chance, I wanted the 15 grand my mom gave me as part of my early inheritnence but once i mixed it with the house i was screwed. Memo to people out there, if you are putting more then your partner down for a downpayment, get it in writing that you will get your downpayment back. Advice from my divorce lawyer, a little too late.
