Phatisa presents Pan African Housing focused on affordable housing in Eastern and Southern Africa. The Pan African Housing Fund was developed to address the need for the housing stage, investing primarily in affordable and middle income residential developments and mixed use development.

The key obstacle in several African Real Estate markets, Kenya included, is the lack of an established developer and an investor who would risk financial and successively in the real estate sector. PAHF will actively seek to provide risk capital and other resources not only to ARL but to other developers who offer scalable investment opportunities in the identified geographies.

The fund provides risk capital to projects on a joint venture basis to selected developers who have demonstrated the ability to successfully execute projects in the designated real estate.
