Unlike Ethiopia and Sudan, the investment landscape in the DRC has seen substantially huge investments that have implicitly contributed to development of the housing and housing finance sector.
This country report forms part of The Centre for Affordable Housing Finance’s Investor Programme which aims at addressing key information asymmetries on who, why and how investments are made in the African housing sector. With the intention of identifying and championing increased investment in affordable housing, the report includes insights and analysis into the depth and breadth of investment in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s housing and housing finance sector. The overall goal of this project is to quantify the breadth of investment activity with respect to housing and housing finance across Africa, and to establish a mechanism to track this on an ongoing basis. This project has collected data and highlights gaps and opportunities in the investment landscape. With the aim of stimulating greater investment in affordable housing and connecting investors with potential investments, the report profiles investors and investment instruments with the greatest impact on the housing finance market within the Democratic Republic of Congo.
