OBJECTIVES 1. To encourage developers to construct housing units on their fully developed lots, thus, creating ready inventories of affordable house and lot packages for sale. 2. To provide developers with a liquidity mechanism that will increase their capacity for construction of housing units and reduce project financing cost. 3. To provide bridge financing for the construction or completion of housing units with approved housing loan applications under the Pag-IBIG end-user financing program.

B. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT 1. The proponent must have established a track record of at least three (3) years in housing development. If the proponent has previous dealings with the Fund, the proponent must have an established track record of delivering quality mortgages. 2. The proponent must have a good credit standing among banks, suppliers, financial institutions and other government housing agencies. 3. At any time, the Funds exposure for wholesale loans on projects of the proponent does not exceed the single borrowers limit prescribed by the Fund.

C. LOAN FEATURES 1. Loan Purpose The proceeds of the loan shall be used exclusively for the construction of the housing units on the property for which the Fund shall release funds; provided that the proceeds of the loan shall entail the house and lot packages in the project site to add up to at least seventy percent (70%) of the total units.

2. Loan Amount / Effectivity of the Line The line shall be based on actual project need per HDMF evaluation of house construction cost, but not exceeding Twenty Million Pesos (P20,000,000.00). The line shall be revolving and shall be made available within one (1) year from date of execution of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between HDMF and the developer, renewable for another year thereafter.

Loan Release The loan shall be released in tranches, the initial drawdown of which shall be equivalent to fifty percent (50%) of the approved loan. Succeeding releases shall be made only after ninety percent (90%) of the previous drawdown has been infused in the project, wherein at least seventy percent (70%) are already in place while twenty percent (20%) are in inventory of construction materials.

In the event that the house and lot packages for which the Fund shall release funds shall be financed by institutions other than HDMF, or in case of cash sales, the corresponding TCTs shall be released to the developer only upon payment of the redemption value.
