More money for Marshalls homes

10:43 am on 24 June 2005

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has launched a housing loan programme in the Marshall Islands.

The department's Rural Development program will provide 236,000 US dollars in loans to help 17 families build their homes over the next two years.

It is the newest loan option for a program that has injected about 13 million dollars in loans and grants into the Marshall Islands for low income housing and community projects since 1990.
