Building a more inclusive housing market in Latin America

We pioneer market-based solutions for families without adequate housing.

Everyone has the right to housing.

Housing impacts every aspect of our well-being: health, education, income, economies, gender equity, and so much more. But right now, more than 1.6 billion people live without adequate housing. We’re in a global housing crisis — and it’s keeping millions of families from reaching their full potential.  

The scale of the housing crisis is too big to depend on traditional solutions like giving away homes to families. So, we don’t.

We partner with the market to unlock the opportunities families need to access the adequate housing solutions they want. Families are no longer beneficiaries — they’re participants.
