Ny hofatrano? the rent

Ny hofatrano? 

Renting an appartment is quite a problem in Madagascar. Generally speaking, in a list of 208 countries rated according to gross national income per capita for 2003 the World  bank places Madagascar at position 187, just 21 places from the bottom. Concerning the rents, first the buildings do not meet the requirements of a decent place of living. Second because of the recent political problems, many people were fired from their jobs and could not make the ends meet nor pay their rents. On top of that population growth is steadfast although collective house building does not exist.  Moreover the world bank estimates that each Malagasy earns only US$290 per year, although the monthly rent is around 250.000 FMG to 500.000 Fmg (iray alina/ roa alina ariary) for 20m2. Consequently crimes rate increases. Therefore building new low-rent blocks of appartements seems to be the solution. http://mada.moreorless.au.com/problems/
