A transformative solution to the challenge of Urban Expansion in Maputo


The model is simple: substitute a family’s ramshackle, one story home with two, well designed two-story homes on the same plot of land.

That family is given, for a nominal fee, a brand new home, and the second is put on the market to finance the operation

Beginning with a demonstration phase to transform 10 plots of land in Polana Caniço A, an area less than 3 km from the city center, Casa Minha will enlist 10 families to participate in a pilot that adheres to six core 6 principles: non displacement, affordable quality, innovative financing, incremental architecture, planned growth and community involvement.  


In 2018 Casa Minha finalized its first 7 houses representing a sample of different architectural models the project proposes to residents, home buyers and investors. We also improved access to both pedestrians and cars and we are now literally 150 m walk from Maputo's main avenue Julius Nyerere.

We are currently building another 7 houses and planning our Phase III with a target of additional 10 houses to be build starting in August 2019.

Costs are escalating but we are committed to ensure our value proposal remains the most competitive in the market. The project's location is privilegedJoin us now and take advantage of this unique opportunity.
