Honduras: $20 Million for Infrastructure

Congress has approved an IDB loan for the construction of three centers that make up the Ciudad Mujer project in Tegucigalpa.

Friday, January 20, 2017

The loan was agreed in a pact signed in late December by the director of the initiative of Salvadoran origin 'Ciudad Mujer' (Woman City) in Honduras, Rosa Lourdes Paz, and the IDB representative in Honduras, Mirna Liévano.

Latribuna.hn reports that "...The first Woman's City center is being built in a populous colony of Tegucigalpa, where women who are victims of violence can access a program of services from 14 public institutions integrated for women."

"... 'The legislative decree states that payments of principal, interest, additional amounts and expenses, will be "free of all deductions, taxes, duties, fees, contributions, surcharges, quotas,  and public, government or municipal contributions or other Honduran charges'. It also states that 'goods and services that are acquired with the IDB loan are "exempt from tariffs, excise taxes and Sales Tax (ISV) levied on imports and / or local purchases'."
