    Background: FACED WITH AN INCREASING ACUTE SHORTAGE OF HOUSING, THE ZAMBIAN GOVERNMENT IS ENCOURAGING THE BUILDING OF HOUSES AND ASSISTING HOME-BUYERS WITH HOUSING LOANS. SOME OF THE FIRST HOUSES BEING BOUGHT UNDER THE SCHEME HAVE JUST BEEN COMPLETED IN NDOLA.

    THROUGH GOVERNMENT ADVANCES, HOME-BUYERS ARE ABLE TO BORROW FIFTEEN PER CENT OF THE COST OF A HOUSE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A MORTGAGE.

    THE SCHEME IS ALL PART OF ZAMBIA'S FOUR-YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLAN, WHICH HAS BROUGHT ABOUT A HOUSE-BUILDING BOOM IN THE COUNTRY.
