On Thursday, President Nicolás Maduro, delivered the 3 millionth house in the Los Corales sector of the state of La Guaira, “after 10 years we are fulfilling [our promise] to Venezuelans. 20 years ago, we were here helping with the tragedy of Vargas,” he said.
“We have reached the goal of 3 million and we are going now for 5 million homes or more by 2025. The GMVV (Housing Program) will continue its consistent steps and framed in the Plan de la Patria 2019-2025. It has been worth so much sacrifice and I thank the Venezuelan working class for this work (…) next year in 2020, we will build 500 thousand homes at a minimum,” said the President.
Earlier, the President ratified – through his twitter account @NicolasMaduro – his commitment to continue dignifying the Venezuelan people, despite the economic war imposed by imperial governments. “Despite the aggressions and overcoming the difficulties, we will reach the goal that Comandante Chávez left us, to make 3 million Venezuelan families happy with their own homes. Mission Accomplished and Let’s Go For More!”, he said.
In the coastal region of “La Guaira”, 45 thousand 131 homes have been built by the GMVV since its creation in 2011, of which more than 7 thousand were delivered during 2019.
The President authorized 43,802 petros for the culmination of 2,818 homes throughout the country.
“With the petro we are going to build the homes of the future…We are going to complete 2,818 homes to continue advancing in this wonderful petro experiment. We are going to create credits in petros for improvement, self-construction and home purchases,” he said.
Maduro pointed out that of the 500,000 homes that must be built annually, 70% will be under the self-construction method in order to link the people with the Venezuela Great Housing Mission.
“We are going with more force with the original project of giving the land to the people so that they are involved in the construction of buildings or houses. 70% we will build using self-construction systems with the communes and organized communities, we will try to achieve it,” Maduro added.
