Evaluating Housing Microfinance Opportunities in Nigeria

AHI was part of a World Bank mission where our role was to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the potential for housing micro-finance throughout Nigeria. This entailed developing a detailed summary of the Nigerian housing finance ecosystem (which has distinctive challenges especially surrounded mortgage finance), Nigeria's capital markets and financial environment, demand and effective demand at the household and family level, and the challenges of both supply-side and demand-side value chains. The evaluation focused on the use of PPPs as a delivery vehicle for housing micro-finance.
