Dangiwa stated that the terms of the MoU, would provide mortgage loans to houses that are being developed by FHF for beneficiaries who must be contributors to NHF Scheme.“FMBN is clearly a leading player on the demand side of the housing equation and partnering with Family Homes Fund as a supplier of affordable housing stock is the right thing to do.“We are ready to provide mortgage loans to beneficiaries of the houses that FHF is building as long as they are contributors to the National Housing Fund (NHF) Scheme.”
