PERSONAL STORY

"My name is Alberto Palacios Perea and I have spent 8 years as a banana farm worker and now have a home for my family. To me, owning a home is the realization of a long time goal and this achievement was only possible with the help of the company. Thank you very much to everyone who helped me get my house."
(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.
