DECREE No. 677

THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF THE REPUBLIC OF EL SALVADOR,

CONSIDERING:

I.-That the Fund for Sanitation and Financial Strengthening, hereinafter FOSAFFI, received from the Bank CREDISA liquidated, credits from the FOCAC Line; these credits for different reasons showed problems of late payment, which led FOSAFFI to bring legal proceedings against these debtors,

II.-That the benefits that forest crops have for the environment is of paramount importance, not only for the area where the buildings are located, but for the entire country. Therefore, it is necessary to support all the people who acquired credits for forest crops, coming from the FOCAC Line, by the Donation Convention 519-0307; so that, in this way they can recover their properties through new credit lines.

III.-That it is necessary to issue a decree establishing credit facilities for the persons mentioned in the previous recital, having the possibility of opting for quotas and preferential interest rates, due to the purpose of their forest crop conservation services.

BY TANTO:
