MIXTA AFRICA SECURES N8BN FUNDING TO EXPAND AFFORDABLE HOUSING DELIVERY

September 7, 2022

Africa’s foremost real estate company, Mixta Africa has secured development financing of N8bn from Shelter Afrique, the
pan-African finance institution that exclusively supports the development of housing and real estate sector in Africa. The
funding will enable Mixta to expand the delivery of affordable housing in Nigeria. The Company is currently executing the
1000-unit Marula Park Project.
Marula Park is a family-friendly, gated community consisting blocks of 1, 2- and 3-bedroom apartments. It is located within
the Lagos New Town district, off Lekki-Epe expressway and is near Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate. Mixta Africa
commenced the development of the affordable housing project right after the successful execution of Beechwood Park Project
achieved in 2018. Beechwood Park consists of over 600 units of bungalows and terrace houses sold under mortgage plans and
at affordable rates for low to middle income Nigerians.
The country manager, Mrs. Sade Hughes in an interview stated that “With the funding from Shelter Afrique, we plan to build
the Marula Park Project faster, thereby ensuring a quick turnaround time for our clients. In addition to affording clients the
opportunity to pay for the homes under our standard payment plans, the residential units will also be sold under the Mixta
Flex scheme which offers varying mortgage options that allow clients to pay for upwards of 30 years and at interest rates as
low as 6%.”
Commenting on the transaction, Mixta Africa, ED and Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Benson Ajayi said; “The funding from Shelter Afrique is a validation of Mixta Africa’s housing and infrastructure development credentials. We are pleased to receive this funding approval after a rigorous due diligence process. In addition to accelerating the delivery of sustainable and affordable housing, the transaction will also strengthen the company’s funding status. The Company is delighted
about the support of Shelter Afrique and looks forward to working with SHAF to deliver on its affordable housing mandate across Africa” The new funding is coming on the heels of the successful
execution of the 13 million United States dollars ($) housing loan agreement secured for the development of over 800 low to middle-income housing units in Morocco, Ivory Coast and Senegal by Mixta Africa.
Lagos New Town has become a burgeoning community with state-of-the-art infrastructure and amenities. Over the last
decade, the Company has steadily increased its investment in the district to adequately support the planned population of at
least 200,000 residents upon completion. Projects already completed include the Lakowe Golf and Country Estates, Adiva
Plainfields Estate, Beechwood Estate and a host of other developments
