MY PERSONAL STORY
"My name is Aracely Palacios and I am one of 47 farm workers from the Cascada-Agripina farm that has benefited from the home loan fund administered by Fundauniban. Having my own home has allowed me to devote more resources to the education of my family." (Translated from Spanish)
Fundauniban has made the dream of more than 5,000 banana farm workers and their families come true. By providing home loans through its housing fund as well as technical and physical assistance in project management, Fundauniban has helped them to become home owners or make improvements to their existing homes, thus enhancing their quality of life.
