Technical Assistance 1994 – 1995

Housing People of Zimbabwe (HPZ)
Zimbabwe, Africa

Over a two year span, Terra worked with the Housing People of Zimbabwe to assist them in meeting their goal of being a financially self-sufficient organization with the capacity to manage the development of housing co-ops in a mortgage financing environment.  Terra worked with the group in identifying and developing options with various lenders to make mortgage finance available to housing co-ops, prioritizing these potions in terms of potential and feasibility and developing an implementation strategy including analyses, forms, procedures, agreements, contracts, budgets and schedules.  Terra provided technical assistance to move housing co-operatives through the various approval processes to construction start. Terra addressed the issue of HPZ’s financial viability by involving staff in the planning stages.
