Ilda de la Rosa, Adarina Tejeda, Vantroi Perdomo, Ilda Doñé and Agustina Pascual were among the people who received this Thursday the first 500 certificates of bonds for the Plan Mi Vivienda, a project that seeks to reduce the deficit of two million houses in the country.
The activity was headed by President Luis Abinader, who said that in the first stage 7,544 apartments will be delivered, financed with up to 60% through a trust fund set up by the Government through Fiduciaria Banreservas.
The president said that the goal is to complete the investment in housing projects, exceeding RD$15.8 billion, and with an economic impact of more than RD$25 billion.
“The plan, in addition to benefiting approximately 25,000 people who will have a decent roof over their heads, will also boost the economy from the construction sector, with the generation of 55,000 direct and indirect jobs,” said Abinader during the event held at the Sans Soucí convention center.

He expressed that the initiative will allow families of different socio-economic strata to be able to acquire their first home with the support of the State, through subsidies, by accessing housing projects with good location and equipment, as well as green areas and access to the main services necessary for human development.
The official indicated that the aim is to reduce the housing deficit in the Dominican Republic, which is around two million homes.
In total, 107,240 applications have been received, which are in the process of being purged by the Invi, said Bonilla.
Present at the activity were Vice President Raquel Peña, former President Hipólito Mejía, Lisandro Macarulla, Minister of the Presidency; Samuel Pereyra, administrator of Banreservas; Eduardo Estrella and Alfredo Pacheco, presidents of the Senate and Chamber of Deputies, respectively, and other officials.
