On Thursday President Ollanta Humala said his administration was aiming to build 500 thousand new homes, by mid-2016.
Humala said his administration was working closely with local authorities, and the private sector, in order to ensure Peruvian workers could fulfill the “dream of homeownership.”
"We aim to build housing to improve living conditions of our people. The family needs a decent home and this is a concern of the government," Humala said, according to Andina.
The President gave these remarks as he presented 288 new apartments to families in Carabayllo, who had qualified for Mivivienda loans.
Humala said work was being done throughout the country, and announced the government would build 10 thousand new homes in Pisco.
"We are working closely with the private sector, local authorities and in order to fulfill the dream of homeownership, fulfill the dream of having a roof of ones own," he said.
Humala urged Peru’s private sector to help with this task, which, he said, will ultimately benefit the entire country.
He said access to affordable housing was part of his social inclusion policy, which was demonstrated by the new apartments in Carabayllo, which were owned by plumbers, computer technicians, and security guards, among others.
"I think we are reaching working people who do not have great resources, but with what they are working on, in their careers, they have access to credit to buy an apartment," he said.
