Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid has approved loans of up to Dh1 million to help Emirati families in Dubai get on the property ladder.
Valued at Dh5.2 billion, the project will see 4,000 homes built.
Several housing areas designed for Emiratis have been completed in the past year. The decision came after Sheikh Mohammed said at the weekend that Dh65 billion would be allocated to Emirati housing in the next 20 years.
