The Kuyasa Fund is a social development organization that uses microfinance as a tool for improving the housing conditions of South Africa’s poor communities. Kuyasa provides microfinance services to those with secure occupational rights, typically home owners, who are excluded from formal finance, in the belief that improving the quality of housing adds essential social value and because no other appropriate sources of housing finance are available.
