Tena koutou e te iwi. The Kāinga Whenua loan scheme is an initiative between Kiwibank and Kāinga Ora to help Māori achieve home ownership on papakainga.
The name Kāinga Whenua combines the concepts of home or homestead (kāinga) and connection to ancestral Maori owned lands (whenua/ahikaa).
Kāinga Whenua supports ahikaa and haukainga to help address whānau papakainga housing aspirations and can be used to build, buy, renovate, repair or relocate a house on to your whenua Māori.
