Welcome to Housing Finance for the Poor.com—the first online repository of information and tools for the growing global community of practice focused on expanding financial services for housing the poor.
From the toolkit, through the research center, and to online discussions, this site is designed for:
  • Microfinance and banking practitioners looking for practical advice
  • Scholars and advocates working at the frontiers of the field
  • Donors and partners looking for the state-of-the-art and future growth trends

Our ultimate goal is to expand housing finance options for the poor by uniting and advancing the community of knowledge and practice.   If you are interested in adding your organization’s publications and website links, or would like to comment on what you see, please contact us or sign up for our quarterly newsletter.


The site is sponsored by the Housing Finance for the Poor Program of Development Innovations Group with funding from a major US philanthropic organization.
