Username Investment Limited has been named the Best Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) aligned to the affordable housing pillar under President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Big Four Agenda, at the recently held Kenya Business Awards.
The Kenya Business Awards seek to recognize Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Kenya that have shown outstanding performance in various aspects of their businesses and support towards the realization of the Big Four agenda.
“This award is a recognition of our efforts to empower Kenyans to own a place they can call home contributing towards the realization of Affordable Housing Agenda, one of the 4 key pillars of the government development agenda while also providing employment to over 50 young people directly. I am proud of Username Team, our clients and stakeholders for believing in us and making us the preferred real estate Company in Kenya and now in Africa.” Reuben Kimani, the Chief Executive (CEO) of Username Investment, said while receiving the award.
Mr. Kimani continued on to say that the lack of affordable land in areas close to urban settlements drew the attention of Username Investment Ltd. and for over 6 years the Company has been offering affordable land with prices as low as Ksh 199,000 and flexible payment plan to ensure that Kenyans have a place they can call home.
“The government is in the process of implementing the Affordable Housing Agenda by constructing 500,000 units by 2022. As a trusted real estate Company, we have been supporting the Government’s efforts by offering affordable land in areas close to urban areas such as Nakuru, Ngong, Kangundo Road, Athi River, Naivasha, Konza and Matuu This has enabled our clients venture into construction of their own homes in phases until they settle their families. We believe this our unique role that continues to create a sustainable way of ensuring we handle the current crisis of lack of housing in our country and also ensure the continuity of the Affordable Housing Agenda. Gradually we will be able to meet the housing deficit in Kenya,” Mr. Kimani concluded.
