GHL Bank CEO, Dominic Adu
The support is geared towards helping the country address a demand for affordable housing that significantly exceeds supply.

GHL has partnered with Appolonia City developer Rendeavour to build a pilot project of 100 houses with plans to expand the development to over 2,000 houses.

“Housing for low and middle-income families is crucial for economic growth in Ghana where the need is critical,” Mr Bohigan said.

"OPIC is pleased to work again with GHL Bank on a project with many development benefits for Ghana,” he added.

The OPIC Executive Vice President’s visit to Appolonia City follows that of President Akufo-Addo last November when he announced the affordable housing project.

Mr Adu thanked OPIC for being a “long-term supporter that brings the vision and financial might of the United States to rapid development in Ghana.”
