ELEMENTS OF CONTEXT
Honduras has “benefited” from the HIPC Initiative on its debt, a debt forgiveness program for the poorest countries. But it was mainly to cancel unpayable debts that have led the country to suspend its refund. While debt relief is conditioned by the application of a range of neoliberal measures that degrade the lives of a large part of the population, violate their rights to human development and weakens the economies of countries by opening the international competition that local producers are not able to face. The HIPC stopped in Honduras in 2005.évères on the development of a secondary market for social housing. Families receiving obligations to the family home may not sell, transfer or their property for a period of ten years, except in exceptional circumstances: Separation of separation and movement of the head of the family in another part of the country under trouble of having to return to the grant received from the State.
