Real Estate Promotion
Real estate development is carried out within our institution by the subsidiary Avorbam Investissements, which was created by the merger between Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations du Gabon and T2G, a subsidiary of the Moroccan group TGCC.

It is an activity that highlights two departments of the said subsidiary, namely the department in charge of assets and the commercial department. One is in charge of the control and monitoring phase of all the real estate assets, and the other is in charge of the marketing of the various housing units after delivery.

Avorbam Investissements optimally manages two real estate projects currently in the commercialization phase:

The residential complex "LES BOUGAINVILLERS"

The real estate program is structured around 15 buildings, located in the northern area of Libreville, precisely in the municipality of Akanda, Avorbam district. This development consists of two types of housing:

  • 165 2-bedroom units
  • 55 3-bedroom units

100% marketed, they remain accessible to all Gabonese since they are based on a hire-purchase formula for a period of 15 years. The Bougainvilleers have a community system administered by a Syndic.

Residential development MAGNOLIA

It is located on the outskirts of Les Bougainvilliers, and is structured around a development of 173 villas on one level, of which 163 have 3 bedrooms, 10 have 2 bedrooms, and 27 apartments divided into 3 blocks of R+2 buildings. This program is currently marketed at 75%.

In order to support the public policies pursued by the Government and local authorities in the field of housing in accordance with Strategic Objective 20 of the Emerging Gabon Strategic Plan, Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations has developed close contacts with local and international companies.

Financing & investments

The financing part is dedicated to Income Generating Activities (IGAs), the CDC in its role as a public policy advisor identifies potential income-generating projects to finance the self-employment of young people.

It partners with specialized entities (FNAS, ONE) in the identification of project leaders through their databases for the selection of projects to be funded.

It carries out the administrative, legal, technical and financial structuring of the project in order to determine the level of financing to be granted, the profitability and the general interest.

The intermediation of the CDC allows:

  • Lower interest rates in relation to the market;
  • To finance the project through a dedicated financial institution;
  • To take a stake in the project;
  • To create SPV project.

The CDC also monitors the project's management, profitability and sustainability through monitoring by the project's stakeholders.

Today, in our role as public policy advisors, we make investments that are both competitive and in the public interest.

The main investments made are in real estate projects, notably "Les Bougainvilliers" and "Magnolia".

The CDC continues to invest in this sector to address a housing deficit that is a direction from the highest authorities included in the Gabon Emargent Strategic Plan.

Local Communities
Despite its young age, Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations has the ambition to become a key player in local development and a promoter of decentralisation, with the DDTF as its secular arm.

This department is specifically responsible for identifying, supporting and implementing productive projects carried out by local authorities. It is a matter of developing partnerships in all forms between the CDC and local authorities. These partnerships are mainly based on joint ventures, equity investments and indirect financing aimed at empowering communities.
