SCANDINAVIA KENYA DEVELOPMENT LTD. IS LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT FUTURE IN KENYA BASED ON THE NEEDS OF NEW HOMES PROVIDED IN THE FUTURE. KENYA HAS AN INCREASE OF ONE MILLION NEW CITIZENS EVERY YEAR WITH A RAPIDLY GROWING MIDDLE CLASS.
First, let me start by sincerely thanking you – our investors, Skeda Invest AB –
for believing in us from the very beginning. With your help, me and my core management team of like-minded and highly professional colleagues, have taken Sweden Kenya Development Ltd. from a startup company to where we are right now, providing our first opportunity for you to invest in our first project..
In Kenya investing in permanent assets like houses is important. Apartments
and other properties are not affected by market fluctuaction as much as other investments.
The population and especially the middle class is growing rapidly and the financial status of this group are getting better every day. There is a great need for housing all over the country. In Nairobi for instance, the need is at least 300 000 new apartments/houses in the near future.
Although investing in Africa can be challenging, it is at the same time an opportunity for great profit. Risks are possible to calculate if you are accurate and the profits will then of course be much greater than if you bet on safe cards.
My “adventure” here in Kenya has been interesting and inspiring. Learning a new country always takes time but it is worth it with the contrasts you discover in different continents. Investing in Kenya with Swedish know-how and quality thinking we believe is a great advantage.
Kenya being the largest economy on Africa’s east coast, is well developed when it comes to IT and the country has relatively good infrastructure. However, much remains to be done and we feel we want to be part of a bright future for Kenya. With abundant possibilities at hand we want to focus on our industry which is the construction sector.
We aim to operate as one of the best developers available building what is in great demand i.e. housing.in the areas we operate.
Information about Due diligence and buying land
Having qualified and trained lawyers in the organization is really vital. The lawyers make sure that documents are written correctly so that they follow laws to our advantage. We work with Dorothy Tsuma who is knowledgeable in the field. She makes sure to check all “Title deeds” and other documents we come in contact with that need to be checked and ensured about its authenticity. Due Diligence is proof that everything is correct for a purchase of land for example. Purchase transactions almost always go through a lawyer who makes sure everything is in order before money finally reaches the seller.
For examples of important documents, see page 27
We comply with the laws and regulations in Kenya, regarding taxes and the working environment legislation applicable in Kenya.
We go through the project a number of times and make sure to minimize the errors that can occur in an initial design and we make the changes that are necessary. Our product is attractive to the Kenyan market thanks to the quality, design and the high value for money that we offer.
In the initial production, we build so-called showhouses to more easily sell our product and to showcase our quality and to give the customer the opportunity to make personal modifications within the regulations that we have decided to be reasonable.
We always do a market survey that determines needs and reasonable price picture.
If you have questions or wonder about something that is not clear, we are happy to answer your questions, see contact information.
