Access to Housing

 

AMBITIONS 2020

About 1 billion people live in slums. As part of our contribution to building better cities, we foster access to housing through locally tailored solutions: microfinance, earth-cement solutions, slum renovation and collective social housing.

Our goal, through our Affordable Housing Program, is to implement a range of initiatives to provide decent affordable housing and financing for home extensions and renovations, for a total of 2 million people by 2020.

Not only I am proud to assist people to build their new home in a safe and qualitative manner but I also learn a lot through the many different types of constructions and methods I have to deal with. Since 2013, I have provided technical assistance to over 100 customers.
