CABS in partnership with the Harare City Council constructed 2 800 houses and the scheme was launched in 2013.

Raising the initial deposit has been very difficult under the current economic environment, but through the rent to buy scheme people are able to and in that regard at least 200 families have passed the phase of renting and are now paying to purchase the house.
