Photographer's Note

Graphical shot taken in Melen, one of Yaoundé's slums. It is the first picture I post here from my recent mission to Cameroon on housing finance. Like most of African countries, over 80% of people in Cameroon can't afford to access a decent dwelling through legal frameworks (banks, public housing) and live in shacks. Informal squatting and incremental construction are thus the only way to build an affordable shelter for most of households.
The house on the photo is a lot cuter than most of surrounding dwellings, and was upgraded several time...
