Solidarity Fund for Habitat

The Solidarity Fund for Habitat (SFH) is a mechanism of solidarity between inhabitant groups through deposits used for financing the construction of community-led houses, in response to the lack of credit for this type of project. It complements international cooperation projects financed by the Swiss cooperation and builds on partnerships with the local public actors.

Thanks to your commitment, the SFH can support the local revolving funds, which then lend to community-led housing projects.
