As of May 28, Infonavit increased the amount lent with the Mejoravit credit. Now workers can request up to 125,190 pesos. The main objective is to reactivate the local economies that depend on the construction sector, making it easier for the beneficiaries to obtain a higher sum to acquire material and, if necessary, to hire the people in charge of remodeling their houses.

Another point in which the scheme has become more flexible is that before you had to have at least 8 months to request it; Now it is enough that you have 4 months trading on the IMSS with the same company, so that you can be a candidate for the loan.

According to infonavit, the main characteristics of this loan are that it is a loan to pay from 12 to 30 months. The minimum credit amount is $ 4,225.84 pesos and the maximum is $ 125,190.60 pesos.
