BCR Offering Several Options for Quake Victims
Banco de Costa Rica (BCR) announced Tuesday it will offer credit options for those afflicted by the Jan. 8 earthquake.
The options will consist of various types of financing for homeowners and businesses.
The home financing credit will be available to those who have income and who are interested in rebuilding their lost homes, fixing their damaged ones, or building a new home from scratch.
BCR will also offer financing to quake victims who have limited income.
In addition to these two financing options, BCR is also offering affected families who are considered to be extremely poor 100 percent financing to rebuild homes. BCR said the bank would offer financing as soon as possible to developers who are rebuilding damaged homes.
Another credit option will consist of BCR identifying small and medium-sized businesses that were affected by the earthquake with the goal of restructure their credit lines and loosen up conditions.
For questions, call BCR, Vivienda Interés Social (Social Benefit Home) at 2287-9000, ext. 1104.
