Nicaragua: Mortgage Fund for Homes

The union of builders is proposing creating an insured mortgage fund, to provide financing for those who can not meet the requirements demanded by banks.

Wednesday, March 7, 2018

The Chamber of Developers of Nicaragua (Cadur) announced that the fund could start with an initial seed capital of $5 million. The objective of the fund is to finance the purchase of new homes, and to facilitate access to financing for workers in the informal sector or clients that receive remittances from abroad.

Speaking on the topic, the president of Cadur, Hector Lacayo, told that " ...People would be able to access an insured mortgage after a study of their economic situation and payment of an insurance policy for which they would disburse 1% per month, and this would validate the loan with the financial system or with the bank it is requested from'."
