How It Works.
Project Bayit is a partnership between Ikhayalami and Mensch. Ikhayalami bring their expertise in micro-finance, design and construction of building shelters in informal communities, and Mensch brings marketing, administration and project management support. Together we manage all the finances, admin, planning, design and construction – you and your domestic worker, cleaner, gardener, or simply someone you care about pay back the construction cost, 100% interest-free, over time. It’s as easy as that.
Talk to your employee and ask them if a new home could make a real difference in their lives. If you want help facilitating this conversation, we’re there for you.
Get in touch and we’ll do an affordability and needs assessment to find a design and repayment plan to suit both your needs.
Once a formal agreement is signed, you simply pay R3,500 or a 24% deposit, and all your hard work is done! We’ll now build the new home.
Depending on your choice of financing, you and your employee pay back our 100% interest-free loan over 12 months.
Let’s Get Building.
We want to keep things as simple as possible for you. We’ll deal with all the admin, planning and construction, but here are a few details you might want to know.
Meet the team.
Project Bayit is a joint initiative of Mensch and Ikhayalami, supported financially by The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
