The union has decided to boost the campaign entitled “Your own home, wellbeing guaranteed” for six months. In this way, CASALCO is providing guidance on the requirements for buying a home, housing projects and steps to legalize properties.

"A house becomes the greatest asset that a family has throughout their lives", said Mario Rivera, president of CASALCO.
