CIVIS April 2003: The Enabling Environment for Housing Microfinance in Kenya (4iv)
The CIVIS notes series shares knowledge and learning arising from Cities Alliance projects and other activities in slum upgrading and city development strategies. It also serves as a platform for policy dialogue and debate among city development stakeholders, including national and local governments, donors and slum dwellers to impact change in the lives of the urban poor and advance the urban development agenda.
Part of the Shelter Finance for the Poor series, CIVIS Issue 4iv analyses the policies, laws, and regulations that affect the establishment and delivery of housing microfinance in Kenya. It is based on findings from an assessment conducted by Accion International and CHF International in May 2002.
