As cities become economic centers, microfinance has an opportunity to adapt to the evolving needs of the poor as they strive to find adequate shelter.
Habitat is linking microfinance with progressive housing, secure land tenure, savings and infrastructure.
In doing so, we are working with a variety of partners to unlock the creative and productive power of the poor by providing working capital and technical assistance.
