This housing complex is part of the social policy of the bicentennial that will benefit more than 44,000 families by 2022, representing about 200 000 people, a little less than half of the people in extreme poverty.

According to the ministra de Vivienda y Asentamientos Humanos (Minister of Housing and Human Settlements), Irene Campos, the projections indicate that women heads of household will be the sector of the population most benefited with these bonds.

“About 6,925 will receive about 60% of the total budget allocated for this purpose, ” explained Minister Campos.

Other priority sectors are the indigenous population, senior citizens, families with members with permanent disability and cases of extreme need.
