With the experience of ground realities, coupled with inputs from experts, we have come up with an approach for creating a new genre of community housing. This model and business strategy is built on three core areas – design and production of community housing, housing finance for communities, and community development initiatives aimed at catalysing the upward social and economic mobility of our customers.

Design & Production of Community Housing

The first of these strategies works on developing a range of house types from one to two room apartments in liveable community environments with community work spaces, crèches, clinics, and community resource centres.

Community Housing Finance

The second focuses on evolving and offering housing finance solutions to the customer. Mapping financial characteristics of potential customers and exploring the potential collaborations with major housing finance institutions are some of the core domains of this strategy.

Community Development Initiatives

The last part of the enterprise model deals with aggregation of the people. Working with its NGO partner Saath in this regard, DBS is committed to actively support the upward mobility of its customers. Thorough handholding measures in livelihood development, enhancing skills, securing health, education and building a credible financial track record are some aspects of community development initiatives.
