ZB launches Plumtree hous­ing project

Sunday News (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

Fi­nan­cial ser­vices group, ZB Fi­nan­cial Hold­ings Lim­ited (ZBFH) is set to build 708 houses in the bor­der town of Plumtree.

The hous­ing project is aimed at pro­vid­ing af­ford­able hous­ing to res­i­dents, with 366 houses ear­marked for the high-den­sity and 342 houses set for the medium den­sity. The com­pany has al­ready se­cured land for the project.

The fi­nan­cial ser­vices group is work­ing on a “Go big” ven­ture and wants to play a ma­jor key role in in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment, pro­vid­ing af­ford­able hous­ing so­lu­tions in the coun­try.

Speak­ing dur­ing the launch of the project on Fri­day, Miss No­math­a­bile Dube, speak­ing on be­half of the com­pany, said prospec­tive home own­ers would be given mort­gage fi­nance.

“The mort­gage is ac­ces­si­ble for first time home own­ers. Re­pay­ment terms are up to 25 years sub­ject to terms and con­di­tions. We have set up a mort­gage desk which is specif­i­cally meant for your mort­gage re­quire­ments,” said Miss Dube.

ZBFH has part­nered with lo­cal au­thor­i­ties to fund hous­ing de­vel­op­ment in dif­fer­ent towns.

“The part­ner­ship with Plumtree emerged from the re­la­tion­ship we have had with the area which has been bank­ing with us for decades. There­fore this hous­ing project will re­sult in houses be­ing con­structed for low in­come earn­ers,” she said.
