Townships in South Africa recognize the value that commercial property entrepreneurs can bring to the community. By investing in affordable accommodation, townships create a thriving local economy that benefits everyone. uMaStandi plays a critical role in communities by providing mortgage loans to property entrepreneurs in townships. The uMaStandi offering assists property entrepreneurs with a full loan package which covers the purchase price, the construction costs, legal fees and other costs at up to 80% of the total project cost. This means the property entrepreneur is expected to contribute a minimum of 20% of their own funds (equity) to reach financial closure for the development.
