Présentation
The proposed project consists of an equity investment in Banque de l’Habitat du Burkina Faso (“BHBF”) in the amount of up to US$600,000 for a 15% stake. The purpose of the project is to support the bank in a critical sector, housing finance, by complementing IFC’s investment with a strong advisory services program to strengthen BHBF’ operations during its critical growth phase, particularly in the areas of risk management and mortgage/property finance. In addition to the bank-specific advisory services program, IFC launched a sector-wide advisory program in Burkina Faso in September 2009 with six participants to help create a viable and sustainable mortgage market.

Objectifs
By supporting the first dedicated housing bank in Burkina Faso, the Project is expected to make a significant contribution to the housing sector in the country by helping to provide a significant portion of the Burkinabe population with an opportunity to access homeownership. IFCs investment will also help mobilize much needed long-term finance to BHBF, which, in turn, will contribute to financial sector strengthening. Finally, the project will help demonstrate the commercial viability of mortgage lending in Burkina Faso.
