Agreement to Build Low-Cost Housing in Nicaragua

At least 3 Nicaraguan banks obtained a loan of $10 million each from the INSS to finance low-income housing projects.

Friday, May 15, 2009

The president of the Association of Private Banks of Nicaragua (ASOBANP), Arturo Arana, told that the agreement with the Nicaraguan Social Security Institute (INSS) “had already been approved and 'I think that several banks already have it. They are going to finance low-income housing with Social Security funds'."

Additionally, the banking sector is awaiting a response from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) on a $190 million line of credit to finance the country's production. They hope to have an answer in two or three weeks.
