summary The aim of the research is to analyse how low income house financing in Gaborone can be improved. The existing low income house financing system is examined in detail (The Self Help Housing Agency System). Its merits and demerits are exposed. International Best practices are then examined; such as those in Chile, Mexico, India, and other countries. Benchmarking is then carried out to identify the Gaps existing between the existing system and the international best practicers. A detailed analysis of the housing market and economy of Botswana is also required to successfully do this benchmarking. One of the end results was the development of a low income house financing analysis and forecasting program that can assist Governments in decisssion making. The inputs are information of households( Size and age of household members, monthly income and expenses etc...), and other global statistics such as prevailing interest rates, income thresh holds for low income and medium households, standard development costs for different models of low income households, inflation rates, and others.

Conclusions and recommendations of the findings were then made.

The detailed research thesis can be obtained from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Univertity, Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

The Supervisor was Prof. Jacobus Van Wyk.
