In Holguin, Local authorities, have created the necessary conditions to sale building materials to the victims of Hurricane Irma, which caused damage to around 11,000 homes, from them, 500 were completely destroyed.
To guide the entities involved, the Work and Social Security, Housing and Bank and Commerce groups developed a training seminar, led by minister of Internal Trade, Mary Blanca Ortega Barredo, in which they explained the peculiarities for commercialization of resources, which this time, was designed with greater benefits.
In this regard, the municipalities will create processing offices, where each victim of the hurricane should attend, after his/her case is evaluated by a housing technician.
Among the benefits of the sale process is the possibility of obtaining the materials through different ways of payment: cash, bank credit, the combination of these two forms, as well as bonus and subsidy.
In case of retirees and pensioners, they will have access to bank loans, which may also be settled by a member of the family that is not the owner of the property affected.
The head of Commerce said that "if the victim does not have the monetary conditions to pay the resources, either in cash or through a credit, the officials of the Ministry of Labor and Social Security will assess the social economic composition of the family affected and will define other forms of payment, or subsidize a part of the value that they must pay.”
"The Revolution does not abandon any of the Cubans; we will give all the facilities to acquire the resources. We are preparing all those who participate in the process for sale of construction materials. Control emerges from the bottom, actually identifying the victims. The agencies involved must take into account the disadvantaged party, so that the procedures and time for the delivery of resources are shortened, “she said.
