Project Overview

Kambi Moto is one of five settlements located in Huruma, 5 km north east of central Nairobi. Although originally a slum area, the city council took action in 2001 to legalise the settlements, and worked in partnership with Pamoja Trust, Reall and resident communities to set up a redevelopment and upgrading project within the area.

In total 86 houses, fitted with electricity and water, were built incrementally with an initial ground floor design that allowed for further vertical construction. The units were designed to have sufficient lighting, ventilation and provide comfortable privacy. Constructed using natural stone, they included a lounge, kitchen, toilet and large bedroom that could be partitioned into two smaller bedrooms. A new community hall, catholic chapel and church site were also included in the project design, as well as an upgraded sewage network.

Mortgage products were provided by the Akiba Mashinani Trust and developed around the community’s savings. To allow the poorest groups in the community to access the loans, borrowers were given the option to repay over a period of up to eight years.
