About Grupo MIA

Group MIA’s mission is to provide dignified, quality housing solutions to low-income families in a profitable and sustainable way. This social enterprise’s business model includes three key components: Finance, Technology and Community Involvement. Group MIA connects homeowners to government organisations or NGOs facilitating microloans (finance), provides low-cost construction solutions to build durable houses quickly (technology), and brings together individuals to form communities that help to build each other’s houses (community).

Since the founding of Grupo MIA the company's DNA has been to be a social enterprise, dedicated 100% to improve housing conditions of the population in rural and semi-rural areas. When we discovered B Corps we found a community that shares our values and vision about how a company can be a factor of change in its environment. Becoming a B Corp is an opportunity for us to share our experiences and learn from those who have the same goal: to be the best for the world.

The Change We Seek®

Grupo MIA wants to eradicate patrimonial poverty and become the largest social enterprise in the world.

What makes us a better company?
