Empowa enables Africa’s first affordable hemp home loan

  • Hemp is an incredibly sustainable material allowing us to build CO2 negative homes
  • It has thermal properties which bring down both the energy usage and lifetime cost of the building
  • Hemp can be formed as blocks, a form that is very acceptable to most lower-income communities in Africa and one that local builders are familiar with.
