Nigerians residing abroad can now take advantage of the National Housing Fund (NHF) Scheme and borrow up to N50 million to purchase homes in Nigeria thanks to the Diaspora Mortgage Loan unveiled on Wednesday by the Federal Government.
Disclosing this in Abuja on Wednesday during the unveiling of the initiative, the Minister of Housing and Urban Development, Arc. Ahmed Musa Dangiwa said that the loan is available to participants via the Individual Construction loan window, Rent-to-Own, or National Housing Fund (NHF) loan.
“With a repayment period of up to ten years and an interest rate in the single digits of 9%, the terms are reasonable and offer the best market rates,” Arc. Dangiwa stated during the unveiling.
Participants can access the loan through the National Housing Fund (NHF) loan, Rent-to-Own, or the Individual Construction loan window.
The terms offered are affordable, providing the best market rates, including a single-digit interest rate of 9% and a payback period of up to 10 years.
Regarding the housing needs of the diaspora, the FMBN is not the only organisation within the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development. Part of the Ministry’s sector-wide initiatives also involves the Federal Housing Authority (FHA).
Through a public-private partnership, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and the corporate sector are developing the Diaspora City Project. The project is located in Maitama 2 and covers an area of more than 675 hectares.
