Message from the CEO<br />

“Never, never, never, never<br />

give up.” Wins<strong>to</strong>n Churchill<br />

would like <strong>to</strong> convey my deepest gratitude <strong>to</strong> those<br />

of you who believe in our dream. <strong>The</strong> stewardship of<br />

the Association has shifted and our new Chairman is<br />

Palkesh Shah and Vice Charman is Kenneth Luusa.<br />

Both have been members of the Association since its<br />

inception and we therefore have no doubt that they<br />

will continue <strong>to</strong> steer us in the best direction.<br />

Perseverance is described by the Oxford dictionary<br />

as ‘persistence in doing something despite difficulty<br />

or delay in achieving success.’ Karibu Homes are a<br />

clear demonstration of what it means <strong>to</strong> persistently<br />

continue <strong>to</strong> deliver affordable housing <strong>to</strong> Kenyans<br />

despite all the bottlenecks that discourage private<br />

inves<strong>to</strong>rs in doing so. Read more on their s<strong>to</strong>ry in our<br />

Challenges in Delivering<br />

Affordable Housing in<br />

Kenya: <strong>The</strong> Case of KARIBU<br />

Homes Ltd<br />

1. Karibu Homes<br />

KARIBU was founded in 2009, with the vision<br />

of “transforming the provision of housing<br />

in Kenya by setting the standard for the<br />

development of affordable, thriving communities for<br />

hard working families.” <strong>The</strong> company was founded<br />

by two entrepreneurs, Irfan Keshavjee and Nick<br />

Gilodi-Johnson, who established the concept and<br />

were then joined by a third entrepreneur, Ravi Kohli.<br />

By Seeta Shah and Ravi Ruparel<br />

Together they set out <strong>to</strong> assemble a strong team of<br />

experienced professionals who shared the passion<br />

for delivering affordable housing using commercial<br />

solutions. <strong>The</strong>ir core values included “<strong>to</strong> bring<br />

affordable, safe, dignified housing as far down the<br />

income ladder as is commercially possible” and<br />

“using commercial disciplines and strategies <strong>to</strong><br />

create social impact.” <strong>The</strong> Riverview Development<br />

(RIVERVIEW) in Athi River is the company’s first<br />

project.<br />

<strong>The</strong> development boom<br />

pushed up land prices<br />

and drove developers<br />

<strong>to</strong> promote<br />

developments at the<br />

city’s edge.<br />

KARIBU has been recognized for its efforts. <strong>The</strong><br />

company was awarded Winner of Best Development<br />

in Sub Saharan Africa at the African Property<br />

Investment awards in 2017, and is included in the<br />

London S<strong>to</strong>ck Exchange group of “Companies <strong>to</strong><br />

Inspire Africa” in <strong>2019</strong>. KARIBU is in the process of<br />

initiating other housing development projects<br />

1.2 Why This Case Study<br />

Kenya has a significant housing gap. <strong>The</strong> World Bank,<br />

in its Kenya Economic Update entitled Housing –<br />

Unavailable and Unaffordable (<strong>April</strong> 2017), estimated<br />

that the housing deficit was 2 million units and was<br />

growing at 50,000 units per year.<br />

<strong>The</strong> Kenyan housing market has seen a significant<br />

transformation over the last 15 years. In Nairobi,<br />

investment in residential real estate started with high<br />

income <strong>to</strong>wnhouse and apartment developments in<br />

neighbourhoods closer <strong>to</strong> the city. <strong>The</strong> development<br />

boom pushed up land prices and drove developers <strong>to</strong><br />

promote developments at the city’s edge. However<br />

the <strong>to</strong>tal number of units built per annum has been<br />

quite small. And most of these developments have<br />

targeted middle and upper income buyers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> RIVERVIEW project was selected for this case<br />

study as:<br />

(i) <strong>The</strong> founders of KARIBU are committed <strong>to</strong><br />

creating affordable housing with a focus on<br />

homeownership (ii) KARIBU was willing <strong>to</strong> make<br />

time available and share their data<br />

(iii) <strong>The</strong> learnings from this project are applicable<br />

<strong>to</strong> the Affordable Housing Programme (AHP)<br />

Focus on Policy<br />

and are likely <strong>to</strong> be useful <strong>to</strong> policy makers and<br />

implementers of the AHP.<br />

1.3 Approach<br />

<strong>The</strong> Case Study was prepared for the Centre of<br />

Affordable Housing Finance in Africa by Seeta Shah<br />

and Ravi Ruparel. <strong>The</strong> authors reviewed documents<br />

provided by KARIBU and also conducted numerous<br />

interviews with the Direc<strong>to</strong>rs and staff. <strong>The</strong> authors<br />

also under<strong>to</strong>ok a survey of a sample of households.<br />

2. Developer’s Perspective<br />

KARIBU’s initial aim was <strong>to</strong> serve as wide a segment<br />

of first time home buyers as possible. <strong>The</strong> concept<br />

was based on a principle of cross subsidization.<br />

Essentially their plan was that higher profits from<br />

higher priced units, would subsidize the lower profits<br />

from lower priced units; but overall the development<br />

would be commercially viable. KARIBU’s research<br />

showed that developers generally only served the <strong>to</strong>p<br />

10% of Kenyan households by income bracket.<br />

<strong>The</strong>y focused their efforts on giving access <strong>to</strong><br />

households in the 40th <strong>to</strong> 90th percentiles at a price<br />

point lower than was prevailing in the market.<br />

Unit Type<br />

2.1 Project Planning<br />

<strong>The</strong> masterplan brief was focused on creating<br />

cohesive and ambient communities. KARIBU’s<br />

research and focus groups highlighted the following<br />

key attributes that were fac<strong>to</strong>red in<strong>to</strong> the design:<br />

a) Low Density<br />

b) Security/Ambience/Environment<br />

c) Incremental building<br />

d) Variety<br />

e) Target Market and Pricing<br />

2.2 Land Identification & Purchase<br />

Size<br />

(sqm)<br />

KARIBU identified three possible locations on the<br />

peri- urban fringes of Nairobi. KARIBU eventually<br />

identified an ideal 20 acre parcel in Athi River, which<br />

was being sold by a private individual. <strong>The</strong> plot is<br />

rectangular shaped (not <strong>to</strong>o narrow) and only one<br />

2.3 Project Financing<br />

KARIBU was successful in raising sufficient equity<br />

financing due <strong>to</strong> the strength of their business plan<br />

coupled with the team’s own networks from previous<br />

projects. <strong>The</strong> 3 founders had put in some cash equity<br />

of their own, so they had “skin in the game.”<br />

KARIBU believes that paying more for land that was<br />

close <strong>to</strong> the main road and easy <strong>to</strong> service was a good<br />

decision due <strong>to</strong> the challenges of providing access<br />

and connecting <strong>to</strong> utilities. KARIBU also obtained<br />

advice from the Arup Foundation, the development<br />

arm of a large international engineering firm. Arup’s<br />

suggestions included providing for wide s<strong>to</strong>rm<br />

water drains and internal roads paved with concrete<br />

blocks. This approach has meant that during heavy<br />

rains RIVERVIEW has stayed relatively dry while<br />

neighbouring estates experienced flooding.<br />

2.5 Building Construction<br />

Within each phase, the delivery of units was<br />

staggered. This was carefully worked out with the<br />

contrac<strong>to</strong>r such that its workforce was utilised<br />

efficiently whilst allowing for a delivery of units that<br />

more closely matched market demand.<br />

A careful analysis of the most efficient block<br />

footprints <strong>to</strong> save costs included:<br />

• Maximising the gross internal area of a block (the<br />

effective space being sold <strong>to</strong> cus<strong>to</strong>mers) relative<br />

<strong>to</strong> its gross external area (the built area paid for<br />

by KARIBU); and<br />

2.8 Sales & Registration<br />

4. Key Lessons<br />

KARIBU also invested in<br />

a Cus<strong>to</strong>mer Relationship<br />

Management (CRM)<br />

system <strong>to</strong> allow it <strong>to</strong><br />

track interactions<br />

with cus<strong>to</strong>mers and<br />

prospects.<br />

• Minimising space wastage such that the mix of<br />

block typologies would allow for a block pattern<br />

that met density requirements whilst maximising<br />

the sense of space across the estate.<br />

KARIBU’s building design used a load bearing wall<br />

structure as opposed <strong>to</strong> column and beam structure.<br />

This eliminated the need for a more costly steel<br />

framework without compromising on structural<br />

integrity.<br />

2.6 Marketing<br />

KARIBU has a comprehensive marketing strategy,<br />

from participating in Property Shows open <strong>to</strong> the<br />

public, <strong>to</strong> having regular open days that are widely<br />

advertised, and making presentations at companies<br />

and government offices either directly or through<br />

mortgage providers. KARIBU also invested in a<br />

Cus<strong>to</strong>mer Relationship Management (CRM) system<br />

<strong>to</strong> allow it <strong>to</strong> track interactions with cus<strong>to</strong>mers and<br />

prospects.<br />

2.7 Pricing & Financing<br />

KARIBU had developed six different unit typologies<br />

between 30 and 95m2. At launch, the pricing of these<br />

units ranged from approximately KES1.5 million <strong>to</strong><br />

KES5.5 million, depending not only on the unit size<br />

and finish, but also on the mode of payment. KARIBU<br />

offered three payment options - Cash Outright, Cash<br />

Instalment or Mortgage.<br />

<strong>The</strong> sales and registration process is quite<br />

cumbersome and involves steps. Due <strong>to</strong> the<br />

cumbersome registration process, KARIBU would<br />

wait <strong>to</strong> group buyers and process their paperwork in<br />

‘batches’ of between 10 – 30 purchasers.<br />

<strong>The</strong> steps involved include:<br />

• Step 1: Booking<br />

• Step 2: Sale Agreement<br />

• Step 3: Agreement for Lease<br />

• Step 4: Construction Completion<br />

• Step 5: Finalize payment and prepare for<br />

registration<br />

• Step 6: Submit Registration documentation<br />

• Step 7: Stamp duty Valuation<br />

• Step 8: Registration<br />

• Step 9: Occupation<br />

3. Buyer’s Experiences<br />

Buyers of the Riverview development were both<br />

owner occupiers and inves<strong>to</strong>rs who purchased the<br />

property <strong>to</strong> rent out. While the distribution between<br />

these two types cannot be defined, KARIBU did<br />

ascertain the intentions of its potential purchasers<br />

at the time of booking. About 70% of purchasers<br />

declared their motive, and of this set, about 70% had<br />

stated they were purchasing for owner occupation vs<br />

30% for investment purposes.<br />

KARIBU staff helped identify a sample of 22<br />

households who were willing <strong>to</strong> be interviewed. <strong>The</strong><br />

sample included 17 respondents from Athi units and<br />

five respondents from Tana units.<br />

<strong>The</strong> main observations from the interviews are<br />

summarized below:<br />

3.1 Buyer His<strong>to</strong>ry & Household<br />

Characteristics<br />

• Most of the respondents are long term residents<br />

of greater Nairobi.<br />

• Most had moved from rental accommodationtypically<br />

two bedroom flats.<br />

• Security, Affordability and Environment were the<br />

main fac<strong>to</strong>rs that attracted the respondents <strong>to</strong><br />

RIVERVIEW.<br />

• Most of the households are a traditional family<br />

unit.<br />

• Most of the respondents are under 45 and highly<br />

educated.<br />

• Many have a long commute <strong>to</strong> and from work and<br />

3.2 Financing Choices<br />

• <strong>The</strong> overall preferred financing method was<br />

Cash: Eleven of the respondents chose the<br />

Cash Outright option while four chose the<br />

Cash Instalments option. Only seven <strong>to</strong>ok out<br />

mortgages.<br />

• <strong>The</strong>re were an equal number of Equity (cash)<br />

Financed and Debt Financed buyers.<br />

• <strong>The</strong> motivation for using equity (cash) only<br />

financing varies: Some respondents had enough<br />

savings for a cash purchase and did not need<br />

debt. Others had assets that they could sell and<br />

preferred <strong>to</strong> do that rather than taking on debt.<br />

Most of the equity financed respondents used<br />

personal savings.<br />

• Assets Sales, Pension Savings and Salary Dues<br />

were also an important financing source.<br />

• SACCO loans are popular and easy <strong>to</strong> obtain. Two<br />

respondents accessed SACCO development loans.<br />

<strong>The</strong> loans were for 3-4 years at interest rates of 10<br />

- 14%.<br />

• <strong>The</strong> mortgage experience varied among<br />

respondents. Two of the seven mortgages were at<br />

subsidised rates; one at 3% and the other at 6%.<br />

One of these was made possible by the employer<br />

having placed a fixed deposit at the bank.<br />

• Most of the mortgage borrowers intend <strong>to</strong> pay<br />

down their mortgages early: Some respondents<br />

said that they were paying more than the<br />

monthly instalments due. Others said that they<br />

were saving money in a Sacco so that they could<br />

pay off the mortgage earlier.<br />

<strong>The</strong>re are a number of lessons from the key lessons<br />

from the Case Study which are likely <strong>to</strong> be useful <strong>to</strong><br />

developers, policy makers and implementers of the<br />

AHP. <strong>The</strong>y include:<br />

a) <strong>The</strong> time needed <strong>to</strong> deliver a project is lengthy<br />

b) Sourcing well located land, serviced land is<br />

critical<br />

c) Transport is a major consideration<br />

d) Planning and densities are important decisions<br />

e) Construction costs and professional fees are very<br />

high<br />

f) Obtaining construction financing is very difficult<br />

g) <strong>The</strong>re is a big gap for owner occupied middle<br />

income housing<br />

h) <strong>The</strong> rental market should not be overlooked<br />

i) Registration is time consuming<br />

j) <strong>The</strong> mortgage market needs greater efficiency<br />

k) <strong>The</strong>re is need <strong>to</strong> tap in<strong>to</strong> other financing sources<br />

5. Conclusion<br />

<strong>The</strong> case study provides a good overall picture of<br />

the challenges of undertaking an affordable housing<br />

development project in Kenya. <strong>The</strong> development<br />

process is challenging and lengthy and requires the<br />

developer <strong>to</strong> simultaneously overcome multiple<br />

challenges. Sourcing well located, serviced land<br />

is critical and transport is a major consideration.<br />

Construction costs and professional fees are high.<br />

And the registration process is inefficient and time<br />

consuming. <strong>The</strong> non-fiscal measures proposed under<br />

the AHP, including a one s<strong>to</strong>p shop for approvals and<br />

streamlining the registration process, could help<br />

make the development process shorter and more<br />

efficient. And a review of the taxes on construction<br />

materials and contracts could lead <strong>to</strong> lower delivery<br />

costs.<br />

Developers also struggle <strong>to</strong> obtain financing, which<br />

contributes <strong>to</strong> the differentiated pricing between<br />

the Cash Outright, Cash Instalment and Mortgage<br />

financed purchasers. Provision of an off-take<br />

agreement, as currently designed under the AHP,<br />

does not provide much incentive <strong>to</strong> local banks <strong>to</strong><br />

provide longer term funding, or reduce their interest<br />

rates.<br />

the profitability of the architect’s services and for<br />

looking <strong>to</strong> commercialise their property.”<br />

Not just another report<br />

have your say<br />

Market comparison <strong>to</strong>ol – Compare construction<br />

costs for different building categories and<br />

construction fac<strong>to</strong>rs across 64 markets.<br />

Indicative cost calcula<strong>to</strong>r – calculates how much a<br />

building could cost based on our market data.<br />

By Turner & Townsend<br />

Turner & Townsend sets the big data benchmark in the Real Estate Market and<br />

helps property developers and architects create commercially viable projects.<br />

<strong>The</strong> latest overview of the construction market<br />

across 6 cities in Africa, including Nairobi<br />

Kenya, and another 58 cities around the world<br />

has been released by independent professional<br />

services company, Turner & Townsend.<br />

With their speciality lying in quantity surveying,<br />

cost management and project management, they<br />

are well placed <strong>to</strong> reveal the patterns and trends in<br />

construction expenditure.<br />

<strong>The</strong> data is released annually in their International<br />

Construction Market Survey (ICMS), the report itself<br />

is considered a <strong>to</strong>ol <strong>to</strong> help property developers and<br />

architects <strong>to</strong> drive more informed decisions upfront<br />

about the viability of certain construction projects in<br />

specific cities.<br />

“Turner & Townsend can<br />

provide numbers that<br />

property developers and<br />

their professional teams<br />

can trust.”<br />

<strong>The</strong> data presented on labour costs, material costs<br />

and plant costs covers projects across residential,<br />

retail, hotels, hospitals, schools, universities,<br />

commercial offices and car parks, industrial<br />

warehouses and even airport buildings.<br />

Practical benefits<br />

When asked about the real value of the ICMS <strong>to</strong> its<br />

readers, Rewel Kariuki, Head of Cost Management<br />

at MML Turner & Townsend explained “We want <strong>to</strong><br />

make the difference by helping property developers<br />

and professional teams take a more commercial<br />

approach <strong>to</strong> conceptualizing projects, and with the<br />

information in the ICMS they can do that.<br />

<strong>The</strong> report evidences the enormous and ever<br />

growing data set that belongs <strong>to</strong> Turner & Townsend,<br />

which is critical for the calculation of construction<br />

and development cost of different building types,<br />

in varying locations, accurately. Kariuki says “If<br />

your data set is small because you’ve only done a<br />

few projects of a specific type then it is difficult <strong>to</strong><br />

trust your numbers. Aside from the data shared in<br />

the report, we have done hundreds of projects of<br />

all project types and across 34 African countries.<br />

Turner & Townsend can provide numbers that the<br />

developers and their professional teams can trust.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> additional benefit, however, is that given the<br />

way we manage big data we are able <strong>to</strong> very quickly<br />

check the viability of a project at the very early ideas<br />

stage with the developer and architect. This way time<br />

isn’t wasted conceptualizing a development that<br />

won’t work financially.<br />

It is a real team effort <strong>to</strong> move from an idea <strong>to</strong> a<br />

design, and make it feasible. <strong>The</strong> team wants <strong>to</strong> get<br />

a feel for these costs as early on as possible so they<br />

don’t have <strong>to</strong> keep going back <strong>to</strong> the drawing board<br />

When asked how the international<br />

construction market survey compares <strong>to</strong><br />

resources produced by Turner & Townsend<br />

competi<strong>to</strong>rs, Kariuki explains:<br />

“Our survey offers more detailed commentary and<br />

a far greater level of data than any publication<br />

produced by our competi<strong>to</strong>rs.<br />

“Most publications only offer detailed construction<br />

cost data for a select few building types and few offer<br />

inputs and trade costs. Our survey provides cost<br />

data for 27 different building types, 19 construction<br />

trades, five construction labour categories and 11<br />

materials in 64 markets.<br />

“<strong>The</strong> survey also provides three comparison<br />

methods, enabling our clients <strong>to</strong> compare projects<br />

on a regional or global level: comparison using US$,<br />

purchasing power parity (PPP) and location fac<strong>to</strong>rs.<br />

Each method is useful <strong>to</strong> a different target group, as<br />

opposed <strong>to</strong> only a common exchange comparison<br />

commonly used by our competi<strong>to</strong>rs.<br />

“All the data published is sourced internally, based on<br />

real projects and the experiences of our construction<br />

professionals. A number of publications produced<br />

by our competi<strong>to</strong>rs rely on data supplied by external<br />

suppliers or contrac<strong>to</strong>rs. It is more difficult <strong>to</strong> make<br />

sure contrac<strong>to</strong>rs in different countries and regions<br />

are pricing the same and providing a true like for like<br />

comparison.”<br />

Using the data<br />

<strong>The</strong> ICMS report is available for download from<br />

Where <strong>to</strong> next?<br />

“We are taking our <strong>2019</strong> results on a roadshow across<br />

Southern and Eastern Africa and will be sharing<br />

and discussing the data across various industry<br />

platforms.<br />

“We welcome a discussion with anyone who<br />

wants <strong>to</strong> understand more about how <strong>to</strong> use<br />

the data <strong>to</strong> the benefit of their projects” says<br />

Kariuki.”<br />
