The business of building houses for low-income families has increased in recent years in Nicaragua, driven by better access to bank credit, coupled with better pay for low-income workers.

Added to this is the housing deficit which is still high in the country. According to the Central Bank of Nicaragua, there is “… a housing deficit of over 900,000 homes.”

Rodrigo Pereira, president of the Nicaraguan Chamber of Construction (CNC), said in an article on Elnuevodiario.com.ni that “… ‘The growth of popular housing this year in the first quarter was 125,200 square meters of construction, compared to last year when it was 56,000 square meters.’ ”
