"The question of access to affordable housing especially for low/lower middle income families in urban areas could also be discussed.Our desire/passion as a small scale social enterprise to make an impact in our community around Nairobi…"
Business to create employment and wealth as a way of uplifting communities.We are also very very passionate about providing affordable homes for many urban families in low and lower middle income segments in our community especially Nairobi and the outskirts.We will use rapid construction technology to save costs and time so that we can sell decent 3 bedroom homes at below US$ 40,000.We believe we can make a big difference when we start with the first project of close to 800 homes with all the basic amenities.Raising funds from commercial banks and profit oriented investors is however a challenge but by sharing our passion we believe like minded people will assist us.Highlighting the issue by the Daily Nation in Kenya has also helped in generating interest from potential buyers especially those in credit and cooperative societies because they can obtain loans at low interest to acquire the much needed homes.
