How to enroll in Plan Procrear 2020 online
Plan Procrear is still running virtually
The first Plan to procreate It was launched by the government of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, and took place between 2012 and 2015. It began by giving loans for the construction of own homes to people with and without land to build on, and then added credits for spare parts and purchase of finished units, always exclusively for the only personal or family home.
This last line was deepened during the administration of Cambiemos, when the program was redirected to lower-middle-class investors upwards and related to urban development in the State.
This homeowner credit program was relaunched in 2020 with an orientation similar to that of the original Procreate. On this occasion, the Government promised to launch 100,000 credits for home construction and renovation, and a line of others 200,000 loans for small fixes, with loans of up to $ 30,000 each. The latter can be taken to paint houses, plastering walls, fixing bathrooms and waterproofing ceilings, among other possibilities.
Due to social isolation measures, the program continues its course but is carried out exclusively virtual. That is why it is necessary for those who wish to apply to the plan to do so online every time the Ministry of Territorial Development and Habitat announces it.
At this time there are no open registrations to which applicants can register, neither for the purchase of finished urban developments nor for the purchase of lots with services where the house can later be built. So the first step is to be aware of the opening of registrations that is communicated on the Procrear 2020 portal.
In that case, to register you will need to complete the corresponding form, which will be available virtually, with personal data and the project you want to access. The complete registration form is sworn declaration.
With this step completed, people participate in the raffles that are carried out periodically, and in case they benefit, they will receive by email a confirmation to continue the process, which includes the presentation of documentation of the bank loan that they want to request.
It is important to remember that these face-to-face stages, such as the delivery of housing, are currently suspended, in the context of the pandemic.
