The plan is divided into three main areas related to productive reactivation, financial protection for citizens and financial stability for the country.
Other proposals by the group, which is composed of 15 public and private banks, include a pledge to support aid programs for small and medium businesses with technical support for studies to measure risk and opportunities.
Another section of the plan proposes the creation of a national program to facilitate loan access to low-income residents.
Solis welcomed the plan and moved to form groups responsible for proposing projects to be implemented with the funds.
Vice President and Finance Minister
The president said he expects the first projects to begin in the next three months, and a first stage would prioritize building or improving public schools and health facilities.
A second stage will focus on developing more complex works such as roadway construction and a new electric train.
Officials will meet in coming days to set loan terms and to appoint fund administrators.
