IDB to provide up to MXN$84 million for housing for low-income public sector employees in Mexico

Innovative loan program will allow FOMEPADE to help finance home improvements and new housing for state and municipal workers 

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), through its Opportunities for the Majority Sector, approved a loan of up to MXN$84 million (approximately US$6.7 million) to FOMEPADE, a Mexican non-banking financial institution, to provide financing through payroll deductions to enable an estimated 80,000 public employees to obtain access to financing for housing improvements and new construction on land already owned by the client. FOMEPADE will work with private homebuilders, certified by CONAVI (Mexico´s Federal Housing Institute), to identify appropriate high-quality, low-cost solutions.
