Low-income families have great difficulties in terms of housing improvement, due to the lack of financial resources to purchase materials and to pay for labor at the same time. On many occasions, families purchase materials partially, store them and then keep saving money to actually carry out the improvements. In the meantime, materials deteriorate, prices rise and improvements become a never-ending story: sometimes, there are families who have their houses under construction for years.
Thanks to Sume Materiales, lower-income families can purchase used materials in good conditions or even new ones at a special price, which is lower than the standard market price, and with progressive discounts depending on the family’s needs. As evidenced by the testimonies of the people who have taken part in our program, families can finally finish and improve their houses.

Companies’ donations represent 63% of donations received monthly (taking into account estimated economic figures). Donations differ in type and content, for example:
- Furniture and coverings due to relocation or internal repairs of the companies: Google, Mercado Libre, Cheeky, Sheraton, Gran Hotel Argentino, Accenture, Banco Hipotecario, Roemmers Laboratory, Pepsico.
- Systematic donations due to the generation of production residues: TecMetal, PentaKa, Occhipinti, Balunek.
- Donations of construction debris: Intecons, architecture and design agencies.
- Donations of new materials: Cordenons, Isolant, Easy, Tersuave.
- Specific-purpose campaigns: Della Casa Muebles Express, Natural Servicios (Gas Natural Group). In these cases, campaigns consisted in an “exchange plan” for customers by offering a bonus or discount to whoever decided to donate their used products in good conditions (armchairs, stoves) at the moment of purchasing products f such companies. In both cases, companies were in charge of the publicity of the campaign and also of part of the donations’ logistic coordination.
- Strategic partnership: Contract. This company specializes in the design and construction of working spaces. We have entered into a collaboration agreement by which we have been included as the last stage of all the works performed by Contract. That is, the company will donate all work residues derived from all the company’s interventions.
