The African Union for Housing Finance was established as a member-based body of housing lenders in 1984. Today, the AUHF comprises of 49 members – banks, building societies, microlenders, housing development corporations, developers and other institutions involved in the mobilisation of funds for shelter and housing – from 17 different countries across the continent. As an industry body, we promote the development of effective housing finance markets across Africa, working in the interests of both our members and the industry as a whole.
In serving its members and realising its goal of effective housing finance markets in Africa, the AUHF pursues four main activities:
– Information dissemination
– Lobbying and Advocacy
– Capacity Building and Training
