Mozambique to build 1,500+ affordable housing units by 2024

(Ecofin Agency) - Mozambique plans to build more than 1,500 affordable housing units for its population by 2024. This was announced on Thursday, December 3, 2020, by Cecilia Chamutota, Vice Minister of Housing of Mozambique.

This program is part of the "Renascer" plan launched last March to reduce the housing deficit in the country. It targets mainly the populations aged between 22 and 45, with average incomes, in particular public workers, or young people at the beginning of their careers, whose salaries are generally equivalent to five times the minimum wage in the country.

In the first phase of this project, 230 million meticals (more than $3 million) will be invested to build about 300 housing units in Maputo, but also in Nampula and the Cabo Delgado province, which is plagued by growing insecurity; 30 other units have already been inaugurated by the authorities in the district of Manhica, in the capital of the country.

It should be noted that each housing unit will cost its owner close to $9,000, payable over 20 years at a rate of nearly $40 monthly.
