Twenty years af­ter the end of apartheid, the path to wealth through prop­erty own­er­ship is still closed to many South Africans. In­ter­na­tional Hous­ing So­lu­tions, a global pri­vate eq­uity firm, is de­ter­mined to change that. Their idea: a fund to build safe, af­ford­able hous­ing for ris­ing mid­dle class fam­i­lies. Citi’s early sup­port and ex­per­tise has helped the fund grow to fi­nance 27,000 hous­ing units across South Africa. Its suc­cess is be­ing used as a model through­out the con­ti­nent. For over 200 years, Citi’s job has been to be­lieve in peo­ple and help make their ideas a re­al­ity.
