(London. 4th November 2014) A high powered delegation from Homelink, a Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe company, incorporated in 2004 to specifically serve Zimbabweans in the Diaspora is in Britain to meet Zimbabweans, "to market our current products, and also obtain feedback from Diaspora partners on what products to develop."

The Homelink delegation, led by Chairman Morris Mpofu and Chief Executive Officer Mrs S Chorwira is in the United Kingdom from 31 October to the 9th November.

The company offers mortgage loans to the Diaspora for purchasing houses, hydropower projects, medical insurance, money transfer and many other products being developed to suit the needs of the Diaspora community.

Historically Homelink issued loans to 700 Diasporans to purchase existing properties.

Currently Homelink has many opportunities including some 300,000 stands throughout Zimbabwe.

"The company constructed 145 houses in Westgate and Prospect Waterfalls which were sold out to Zimbabweans in the Diaspora. Through valued experience gained the Company will be constructing more houses in Tynwald and Marlborough (Harare), Parklands Bulawayo, Mutare and Kadoma," said Mrs Chorwira.

Lucia Dube, the Chairperson of ZDFG, the umbrella body for UK based Zimbabwean organisations, who are hosting Homelink said: "At a time when British business has gone back into Zimbabwe and European Union lifted sanctions, it can only be proper that Zimbabweans in the Diaspora get a chance to participate when opportunities are made available. I encourage Zimbabweans to meet the delegation during the Roadshows."

Homelink say this roadshow is informed by lessons learned in the past and an acknowledgement of the role of the Diaspora community that kept Zimbabwe going through difficult economic times.

"We will be eager to get feedback from all of you dear Zimbabweans," Mrs Chorwira said.
