Making Finance Work for Africa and the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF) are pleased to present on Thursday, 21 June 2018 at 1:00pm GMT a webinar entitled, "Lowering the high interest rate cost of housing finance in Africa".

Almost universally, African economies are burdened by high interest rates: high borrowing costs reduce the continent’s overall growth potential. Particularly, they hinder borrowers wanting to enter into longer-term commitments, such as home-buying, which often is the largest investment any household will make.

Fiscal dominance, weak regulatory frameworks that drive up credit risk premiums, a lack of long-term funding and limited use of collateral value all drive up the interest rate cost of housing in Africa.

This webinar will provide insights into the measures that might be taken to reduce the interest rate cost of housing across the continent.

Speaking at the webinar will be Michael Fuchs, who has recently authored a paper for CAHF on “Lowering the high interest rate cost of housing finance in Africa”.
