WATCH: Meet the team making homeownership a reality for rural families
There’s a passionate, hard-working team turning the MiCASiTA concept into realty. The modular homeownership innovation was created for rural communities in regions where poverty persists. MiCASiTA departs from a one-size-fits-all approach to homeownership. Instead, it’s built on the belief that families should be able to grow into their homes.
