The upcoming FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 and the Rio Olympics 2016 coupled with the fact that Brazil currently has one of the fastest growing economies in the world have prompted the Brazilian government to spend billions of R$ on improving the infrastructure of the country. President Dilma Rousseff has pledged R$50 billion for improvements to the transport system, which includes a brand new airport, new roads and the enhancement of the existing road and rail facilities. There has also been additional funding set aside for the highly popular minha casa minha vida Brazil social housing scheme, which was set up by Rousseff’s predecessor Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva in 2009 in a bid to provide more affordable housing for the low to middle income families of Brazil. The project proved so successful that Rousseff not only continued the scheme but introduced more government backing and contracted out a proportion of the building work to private companies in a bid to attract more foreign investment.


EcoHouse Brazil were one of the first private companies to become involved in the minha casa minha vida project back in 2010. Over the past three years EcoHouse Brazil have been able to provide housing for thousands of Brazilian families at a subsidised rate and have made millions for their investors. For the first three years the typical return on an average £23,000 investment in minha casa minha vida through the EcoHouse Group was twenty percent over twelve months. Recently that figure has dropped slightly, but EcoHouse Brazil are still able to offer returns of 15% on investment over one year. A spokesman for EcoHouse Brazil announced that the 20% rate was always an introductory figure, and that the rising costs of materials and such has finally resulted in the figure being lowered. However, EcoHouse Brazil offer one of the safest returns on investment, with a proven track record and full transparency at every stage of the process.


The third EcoHouse Brazil development for the minha casa minha vida scheme is due for completion next year, and will provide affordable accommodation for up to 6,000 families.
