Mortgage Loan Program for Low Income Families in Colombia

The project's objective is to contribute to reducing the quantitative housing deficit for the Base of the Pyramid (BOP) in Colombia by facilitating access to mortgage loans for low-income housing. To achieve this objective, the Opportunities for the Majority Sector is proposing to provide a Partial Credit Guarantee (PCG) of up to US$5.2 million, equivalent in Colombian Pesos (COP), to Credifamilia Compañía de Financiamiento Comercial S.A, the first regulated financial institution in the country to specialize in mortgage lending for low-income housing (Vivienda de Interes Social, or VIS). With the IDB PCG, Credifamilia will be able to borrow US$5 million, equivalent in Colombian Pesos (COP), from the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC) (The Guaranteed Loan). The IDB resources would support Credifamilia's early loan origination activity and allow it to attract additional financing from the market.
