The State of Housing Microfinance Report by the Center for Innovation in Shelter and Finance (CISF) of Habitat for Humanity International

Studies have shown that a majority of low-income families in Asia-Pacific and other regions upgrade their homes progressively. Lacking access to conventional financing, an estimated 330 million urban households living in inadequate housing are unable to improve their homes and lives. A recently published report by Habitat for Humanity’s Center for Innovation in Shelter and Finance highlights housing microfinance as a viable, sustainable means of providing families with a path out of poverty through decent housing.
