Webinar on Scaling Housing Microfinance

As part of Habitat’sTerwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter’s ongoing work in advancing housing finance for low-income households, the center, in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation has been implementing a capacity building project over the past five years known as “Building Assets, Unlocking Access (BAUA)” with six leading financial institutions in Kenya and Uganda to develop housing microfinance products and non-financial support services for people living on less than US$5 per day. The project has generated many useful lessons and insights for researchers, practitioners, investors and potential partners regarding the process of pilot testing, implementing and scaling of housing microfinance products.

In this webinar, representatives of two of the financial institutions in the project – Centenary Bank and KWFT – will share their insights on institutional and external factors for success, challenges faced in the course of implementation and remaining opportunities for housing microfinance. The Terwilliger Center’s own Sandra Prieto (Global Director, Financial Inclusion) and Jyoti Patel (Global Director, Capital Markets), joined by consultant Christy Stickney, will lend a global perspective to success factors and opportunities for housing microfinance including essential requirements for successful scaling of products.
