Crédit Mutuel d’Investissement du Cameroun, abbreviated as CREMIN-CAM, has launched a real estate project that is geared towards helping members acquire titled lands.

The project baptised, “One Member, One Plot” was launched in Yaounde on July 6 in the presence of partners and members of the financial institution.

Speaking during the launching ceremony, the Director General of CREMIN-CAM, Ruben Ntap, described the project as a great achievement, considering that Cameroonians and members usually have serious problems acquiring titled lands.

“We noticed that acquiring land is becoming delicate and so many people are being duped. We thought it wise to develop a project to satisfy our members. If they pass through us, they will be very sure of having their legalised land,” Ruben Ntap said.

According to the DG, the institution has acquired land in Yaounde and Douala and is ready to accompany members to fulfil dreams of buying a land and building a house.

To Valentine Okale Dang, Deputy Director General, after expressing the desire to buy land, members can pay cash and “we sign the sales convention”.

He noted: “At this juncture, there are two options, either continue with the operation in obtaining a land title or confine it to CREMIN-CAM. Secondly, we can give you a loan facility, when you pay the loan, we can hand over the land title. Thirdly, you can pay part and we give you a loan to pay for the land.”

A member who spoked to The Post appreciated the project indicating that, “This is a great move towards the right direction. We have suffered a lot when it comes to buying of lands here in urban cities and I think that the coming of this initiative is a welcomed idea and I will use it to the fullest.”

The Director General of SCI Global, Marcel Nyetam, said they have decided to partner with CREMIN-CAM because the vision that the institution has for its members and Cameroonians aligns to theirs.
