In partnership with Practical Action Publishing, e-MFP, InFiNe.lu Member, publishes its first book: “Taking Shelter: Housing Finance for the World’s Poor.” Co-edited by Patrick McAllister and e-MFP’s Daniel Rozas and generously funded by Calmeadow, Credit Suisse, Habitat for Humanity, Triple Jump and the Agence Française de Développement, the new volume explores the full spectrum of housing finance practice, from the perspective of the household, the FSP, investors, and regulators and policymakers.
The new volume draws on the experience of nearly a dozen expert authors. In it the reader is led by Marja Hoek-Smit to see big picture and macroeconomic significance of low-income housing finance, introduced to the full breadth and complexity of the pro-poor housing ecosystem by the book’s editors including a case study of the entire ecosystem in India.
All these contributions are woven together into a seamless volume by the editors who close the book by calling on all the stakeholders in the sector — providers, investors and policymakers — to up their efforts and make housing finance available to poor households around the world.
