The houses have a cost of 9,500 dollars and "the Government through INVUR and different programs will provide a subsidy of 2,500 dollars, the municipalities through the lots of land and the works that we develop in them, we will deliver another 2,500 dollars In other words, families only have to contribute $ 4,500, a little less than 50% of the value of the homes. But those 4,500 dollars can be contributed to a 25-year loan with installments that are below 40 dollars, ”he explained.
He stressed that it is an urbanization that has all the basic services, electricity, drinking water, sewage, public lighting, green areas and recreation.
In the same way, he emphasized that these houses have a facade similar to those of the Monte Nebo Residential, the size of the lot is between 150 and 180 square yards, the construction area is 54 square meters, prefabricated with blocks, they have a laundry area on the outside and a 51 square meter patio, they will have two doors, two windows and a standard bathroom.
"This type of housing to be able to ensure that they cost less than 40 dollars, internally it does not have partitions, only the bathroom partitions, this is precisely to ensure that internally, you can make the partitions as best suits your needs, we We deliver a master plan from which, you say well, I want two rooms, I want one, I want three, I prioritize the living room, dining room, kitchen area ”, he stressed.
Moreno said that this program is novel worldwide, since it is aimed at families with fewer resources and who do not have reliable mechanisms to prove their income.
Self-employed workers who, if they have an income, but cannot pay social security and do not have a salary certificate, can opt for a home. The protagonist will explain the nature of his work and this program will make visits to the families and the place where he has his business, in order to corroborate the information provided, in the same way if the protagonist receives remittances, they will be able to present the receipts that show that he receives at different times these remittances.
