Micro - housing loans

This is not a new concept, but only now coming to India. National Housing Bank (NHB) and Chennai based Repco Foundation for Micro Credit (owned by Repco Bank, owned by Government of India), are disbursing micro home loans in five districts of Tamil Nadu. The loans range form Rs 25,000 to Rs 2 lakh. This is not for buying land, but only construction loans for those people who already own the land. Obviously, over the coming days, the model will change to include buying land as well.
