2. Ghana’s Cofundie launches platform to crowdfund house construction cost
The idea is to allow co-crowdfunders share in the profits after these homes are sold or rented out.

The startup seeks to do this by increasing investment in affordable housing built using cost-effective and time-saving techniques and materials such as earth bricks, rammed earth, used shipping containers and polystyrene panels.
Chukwuemeka Ndukwe, co-founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of Cofundie, stated that the team is working committedly to make the idea record success.
He said: “Our team came together based on a shared interest in using tech to solve problems in the property sector on the continent and making it work for people who live here.”
