A joint housing project between a bank and the Chamber of Construction will be carried out in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.
The president of the National Agricultural Development Bank (Banadesa), Johnny Handal, and vice president of the Honduran Chamber of Construction Industry (Chico), Oscar Calona signed off on a program for building popular housing.
As part of the anti-crisis plan, the government will take bids for construction of the first 2,000 homes.
The anti-crisis plan calls for the construction of 25,000 homes by means of the National Fund for Popular Homes (FONAVIPO, acronym in Spanish).
Mario Rivera, president of the Salvadorian Chamber of Construction, informed Laprensagrafica.com: “We are hoping that president (Mauricio) Funes approves the proposal for the construction of 13,000 homes funded by FONAVIPO, currently in the ant-crisis plan. He mentioned that there will be 2,000 homes built first. Also, we are hoping to move forward with the construction of 5,000 homes financed through private banks.”
