El Salvador: $22 million for Reconstruction

President Mauricio Funes has already allocated $22 million for the reconstruction of road infrastructure damaged by the storms that have recently affected the country.

Friday, October 21, 2011

The funds, part of a $50 million loan from the Interamerican Development Bank, will be distributed between the reconstruction of bridges and arteries ($ 10.8 million), resurfacing works ($ 6 million) and the rest will go towards meeting other emergencies, focussing on connectivity designed to revive the western department of Sonsonate.

According to an article in Laprensagrafica.com, "The executive reiterated that over 60% of crops in Bajo Lempa were damaged, which could have a negative impact on the economy, however the government will do everything in its power to avoid potential problems."
