The increasing cost of building materials has hindered the desire of people to own houses.

As Ghana’s population grows, mortgage packages have been introduced to make house ownership affordable and easy to access.

This initiative was started by Republic Bank Ghana, formerly HFC Bank.

The bank has introduced a financing mechanism that is flexible and pragmatic.

Formal and informal sector workers with a regular stream of income are eligible for a mortgage loan application.
