In the Mexican housing market, the cheapest offered solution costs is about $30,000 dollars. Poor people do not have access these solutions. We developed an improved a version of the Iquique’s Quinta Monroy project, where the houses underneath and the duplex apartments on top have an initial cost of $20,000 dollars, but can achieve a middle-income standard after the self-built expansions.



The efficiency in land use without overcrowding, allowed us to purchase land in a neighborhood where the average cost is $50,000 dollars. We expect the families to benefit from that value gain and from the fact that the land’s cost expresses close availability of services and opportunities.
