DW Angola — Housing Micro-Finance & Informal Land Markets: the case of KixiCrédito Angola
Housing Micro-Finance & Informal Land Markets: the case of KixiCrédito Angola
Allan Cain, DW Director, gave a presentation on "Housing Micro-Finance & Informal Land Markets: the case of KixiCrédito Angola" at the Panel of the Centre for African Housing Finance Habitat 3 Conference on Informal Settlements that took place in Pretoria, South Africa from April 7 to 8, 2016. KixiCasa is a re-launch KixiCrédito's housing product offering clients loans for improving their houses or building phased up-gradable houses over several loan cycles.
Angola has made a declaration of the political will of the State to resolve the urban problems associated with the post-conflict shortfall in the supply of housing. Public commitments have been made by senior political officials regarding the urgency of ensuring that each citizen has a decent place to live (the most important being the promise made by the head of state in 2008 – to build 1 million homes). From the practical point of view, Angola’s housing policy is still being developed along with a formalised housing sector programme.
