In Latin America, inadequate housing is a symptom of larger problems.


80% of families in Mexico don’t qualify to purchase the average home available in the market.


About 70% of the adult population in Latin America is unbanked.


Nearly 60% of homes in Mexico are built by families without construction expertise, often taking multiple generations to complete and leading to substandard quality.

Empowering families on their path to adequate housing

Everyone has the right to adequate housing. But not everyone faces the same obstacles on their path to secure it. We work with the market to address barriers along the housing journey.

Land acquisition

We make land ownership more accessible for families so they have the collateral to move closer toward homeownership.

Home improvements

We make construction expertise and affordable financing accessible for families who want to improve their inadequate shelter or progressively build their homes.

New home acquisition

We increase the supply of housing and financing options that are affordable for families who want to buy their homes or build their homes incrementally.

Families stay safe

Adequate housing reduces financial stress on families and domestic violence, promoting a safe childhood environment.

Families grow healthy

Concrete floors, leak-free living spaces, and access to basic services such as water and sanitation dramatically reduce chronic diseases and adverse effects of climate change.

Families increase income

Families with adequate housing create generational wealth and improve their financing opportunities.
