How the Learning Lab activated the My Home, Your Business Guide in Nigeria

GUIDES: Inclusive business guides are best when the content is activated in a local context. At the Learning Lab we can leverage our experience in this field to help you expand your business in developing countries. This is how we did it in Nigeria.

Our inclusive business guide My Home, Your Business - A Guide to Affordable Housing Solutions for Low-income Communities focused on doing business in the affordable housing sector in Nigeria.The challenges and solutions for affordable housing businesses, which were discovered in the guide, were presented at a workshop in Nigeria facilitated by BOP Learning Lab. For businesses in the sector, this was an excellent opportunity to learn about business modelling, stakeholder management and inclusive construction business tailored to the BOP countries. The workshop included multiple stakeholders ranging from governments to NGOs and businesses, which helped businesses in the affordable housing sector to expand their network within the industry. The guide was commissioned by GIZ on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.

At the Learning Lab we have through years of fieldwork accumulated a thorough understanding of the BOP markets and the opportunites and challenges they present for Danish businesses. You are welcome to contact Learning Lab Manager Karen Panum Thisted for business inquiries in the BOP.


The findings of the report draws on extensive research carried out by the Learning Lab, thus it is replicable and scalable in a number of BOP settings. You can find more guides and resources the BOP Learning Lab and partners here.
