Uganda

One of our priority countries, Reall has been operating in Uganda and pursuing a commercial approach since 2014.

With over two-thirds of Ugandans living in sub-standard housing, the country’s housing need is great. Uganda’s urban population growth is rapid, particularly in major cities such as Kampala.

Reall’s work has focused on a partnership with the Ugandan Cooperative Alliance (UCA), the apex body of cooperatives in Uganda. In 2016, UCA collaborated with Reall to establish Enterprise Housing Development Uganda (EHDU), with a mandate to provide affordable housing to low income Ugandans. EHDU’s first project is in Lira, a town in northern Uganda.

Though housing delivery to date has been small, EHDU has experienced considerable success in negotiating with a local housing finance bank to provide affordable mortgages to clients on low incomes.

Market Shaping Indicators: Key Indicators

The lack of market intelligence and data is a key constraint undermining private sector participation and good policy engagement in affordable housing.

A joint initiative of the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF) and Reall, the MSIs aim to bridge this gap by making key market data available to all that need it.
