Description and Impact

Formal documentation of property rights provides individuals with security, access to financial services and the ability to transfer rights. Families living in poverty use this economic boost to make home improvements, send children to school and invest in small businesses for financial stability. Despite the transformational potential of property rights formalization, 140 countries do not have effective property administration systems, and only 25 percent of the world’s estimated 6 billion land parcels are formally registered.

Incubated under the auspices of the Harvard Innovation Lab, Mercy Corps and Habitat for Humanity, Suyo was designed to generate social and economic opportunities for low-income families through property rights formalization.

We hope that through this technological deployment we can continue to systematize and automate our processes, so that we can continue to deliver the lowest prices and highest quality to our low-income customers. We generate social impact by ensuring that the low-income population which we service has access to a transparent and economical property formalization services that better quality of life, now and for generations to come. 


Complete migration to the new platform (CRM + project management) and launch of our new mobile app, fully integrated with the platform. This will include:  

* Development of missing features to improve all internal management.
