Technical Assistance to pre-selected microfinance banks to develop and pilot housing microfinance lending operations in Nigeria

The Federal Government of Nigeria has received financing from the WB towards the cost of the Nigeria Hosing Finance Program (NHFP), which includes a Housing Microfinance (HMF) component.

The objective of the HMF component is to support selected microfinance banks (MFBs) with developing and piloting new and/or strengthening emerging or existing formal HMF products in a sustainable fashion. The project also includes a line of credit for rolling out tested products.

The consulting services include providing necessary technical assistance and delivering on specific capacity building measures to a total of eight pre-selected MFBs in Nigeria to facilitate the launch / expansion of their HMF lending operations and to enable then to subsequently access funds from the housing microfinance credit line under the NHFP to roll out tested products and services.
