In 1998, CEMEX conducted an exploratory study designed to evaluate the impact of CEMEX social programs on neighboring communities, investigating their principal necessities and their perception of them.

The results of this study were the first ingredient in the creation of a program of high social impact, with the objective of empowering people to be self-sufficient, organized, with specific and disciplined goals, thereby allowing them access to self-construction loans and high quality construction materials, by means of the Patrimonio Hoy Program.

The Patrimonio Hoy Program aligns values and commercial corporate goals with the needs of the communities where we work, thus generating sustainable benefits with long term benefits for both parties.

From within Patrimonio Hoy three essential parts work together in a coordinated and united manner:


In accordance with business strategy, the people benefiting from the Patrimonio Hoy Program are the communities impacted by the Enterprises’s Operations, meaning the Provinces where the Plants and Extraction Mines operate.

Primary Programs and Projects

The Patrimonio Hoy Program has as its main goal the improvement of the Quality of Life of the Dominican Family through the fomenting of the habit of saving and thereby facilitating access to interest-free microloans.

Additionally, it contributes to the reduction of materials waste and the increase of the performance of the same in the construction or remodeling of homes by means of technical assistance from the Company’s engineering experts.
