Mexico launches ViviendaApp oriented to housing solutions

Through joint action between the IDB and Habitat for Humanity Mexico, the lower resource populations now have a technological help to obtain information on housing construction, materials, financing, credit, ecological technology and more

ViviendaApp is a tool to help the most vulnerable sectors of the Mexican population in terms of housing. The application is the result of a joint effort between Habitat for Humanity Mexico – through the Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Housing – and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).

The purpose is to provide information through a digital platform to the less favored sectors on the construction of their home, sale of materials for these purposes, green technologies. In addition, the application will contain data on financing and credit for housing solutions.

Sources related to the launch indicated that it will also offer “the possibility of exchanging services or construction materials among users of the same application, looking for this alternative to save families”.

In the first stage, the platform is concentrated in the municipalities of the State of Mexico (Ecatepec de Morelos, Naucalpan de Juárez, Tlalnepantla de Baz, Atizapán de Zaragoza, Tultitlán, Chimalhuacán and Cuautitlán Izcalli) to reach 15,000 families during 2019.

According to Karen Foreman, vice president a.i. of Habitat for Humanity International Latin America and the Caribbean, the tool “will allow many Mexican families to coordinate their efforts and relationships to improve their homes in a self-sufficient way and will allow us as an organization to generate a social impact on a larger scale”.

An important fact for the population is that ViviendaApp is available to be downloaded for free with the IOS and Android operating systems.
