Reall’s partnership with AMC
AMC develops affordable housing in Pakistan – targeting large cities such as Faisalabad, Lahore, Multan, and Peshawar
They design with local communities and culture in mind by building houses in desirable communities for the bottom 40% of the population
With Reall’s financial support, AMC have constructed over 700 homes and serviced plots with 4,000 more in the pipeline
AMC are one of the largest partners in Reall’s global network
The Safiya Homes project
The project allows families on low incomes to secure home ownership through Akhuwat – an innovative loan system
Akhuwat is one of Pakistan’s biggest and most successful micro-financing organisations, based on a business model of not charging any interest on loans
Instead, families who receive loans are asked to donate back to the programme if they want to support other families
Houses have been built on plot sizes of three marla (675sqft)
The average cost of a house is Rs20,00000 PKR which is £9,050 GBP

Emma Ahmed, Reall’s Head of Asia Operations said: “Reall has been investing in and supporting AMC in our joint mission to deliver commercially viable, affordable housing to people on low incomes in Pakistan since 2014. Through this partnership AMC has driven the affordable housing market – building homes, influencing policy and advising the government on delivering on its mandate to build five million homes by 2023.
This hard work has culminated in the start of AMC’s flagship project, Safiya Homes, based in Pakistan’s second largest city Lahore – which is one of seven Safiya Homes projects that AMC has been delivering through Reall’s investment over the past six years.”
Reall look forward to continued progress with AMC as we unlock affordable housing for hard working families in Pakistan.
