Los Castanos de Choloma affordable housing project in Choloma, Honduras, was designed with a central park area that provides shelter from surrounding violence and encourages residents to maintain and take pride in their property. Inter-Mac International Inc. is using OPIC financing to build a community of 2,400 single-family homes that are affordable to working families earning minimum wage. Inter-Mac is also building out critical infrastructure in the region including paved roads, electrical grids, wastewater treatment and running potable water. The project recently won a Gold Nugget award by the Pacific Coast Builders Conference.
