Housing Finance’s development Internationally acclaimed property developers, FAKHRUDDIN PROPERTIES will also be participating for the first time in the 2018 UK UGANDA TRADE & INVESTMENT CONVENTION through their group company in Uganda, FAKHRUDDIN PROPERTIES UGANDA LTD.

 

The Founder and Chairman of the UGANDA UK CONVENTION (UCUK), Mr. Willy Mutenza, expressed his satisfaction at having a real estate development company of the caliber of FAKHRUDDIN PROPERTIES join this prestigious event.

 

 

Mr. Mutenza further commented that there was a huge deficit of housing in Uganda and FAKHRUDDIN PROPERTIES is pioneering the drive to provide premium quality, modern homes at truly affordable prices.

 

The Marketing Director of FAKHRUDDIN PROPERTIES UGANDA, Mr. Haidry stated that taking part in UCUK was a source of great pride for the company.

 

“We are passionate about housing and our principal business goal in Uganda is to ensure that every Uganda can own a home. In Willy Mutenza we have found someone who shares this passion and who has been working tirelessly towards achieving that”.

“Access to ownership of homes in Uganda has thus far been limited to a very small section of the population because good quality homes are priced beyond the reach of the majority of Ugandans. We intend to change that. With proper planning and efficient systems, it is absolutely possible to construct modern, quality homes which can be sold at truly affordable prices whilst still generating a profit for the developer”, said Haidry.

Current data indicates a housing deficit of 1.2 million homes in Uganda with a further 300,000 required year on year.

At this year’s event FAKHRUDDIN PROPERTIES UGANDA LTD will be showcasing its ongoing projects in Kampala, JASMINE COURT Najjera, HAZEL RESIDENCY Namugongo, TULIP TOWER Naalya and LILY HEIGHTS Naalya.

 

The Ugandan law now recognizes the ownership of condominium and owners can acquire land titles just like in developed countries.

 

The annual convention, organized by the Ugandan diaspora in the United Kingdom, is set for September 15 in East London. Willy Mutenza, the main architect of the event, says more than 1,000 delegates including government officials, private sector leaders and entrepreneurs will attend.

 

According to Mutenza, the meeting will provide a unique platform for Ugandan entrepreneurs and international business community experts to discuss ventures, investment opportunities and ways to achieve sustainable economic development.
