CAR to set up housing bank

APA - Bangui (Central African Republic)

Leading officials of Shelter Africa Center, a real estate and housing firm based in Nairobi, Kenya are toying with the idea of establishing a bank for housing in the Central African Republic.

One of the company’s leading officials, Femi Adewole, who met with the Minister of Housing, Gaby Francky Lefa to discuss such a possibility, said their ambition is to find solutions to the difficulties of state officials without decent housing.

With the proposed housing bank, Shelter Africa seeks to finance projects for the construction of social housing in the Central African Republic to put an end to the crisis in the country’s housing industry.

However, she warned that for such a housing scheme to become a reality, the country has to return to lasting peace and security.

The violence in CAR is characterized by the burning of homes, causing a cruel housing deficit that must be addressed to promote a definitive return to peace and national reconciliation.
