In Africa, Kenya has become very advanced in housing cooperatives. They have a lot of housing cooperatives, It is therefore our desire that this housing cooperative platform to bring people together to put aside money to make savings together, so that they are able to plug into houses that they can afford.”
He further said that for those who may have family members or friends who want to become a part of the cooperative but are not resident in Abuja, they could become members from any part of the world. All they would need to do is to visit the cooperative website, fill the registration form and pay their registration fee using a secure payment platform.
