About Us

We are a start-up digital property platform focused on making it safer and easier for Uganda Diasporas to buy property from local Ugandan developers. The Promotar, a Diaspora Realty was born in London, UK as a Ugandan-focused diaspora initiative supported by London, UK-Uganda Convention, YuFundMe, MM2Capital and IndianDiasporaNetwork.

The main objective is connecting Diasporas to approved and certified developers, sellers, service providers, agencies and agents in Uganda.

We aim to introduce an innovative and more transparent process designed to help mitigate the risks as well eliminate the stress that buyers currently face when acquiring property in Uganda.

Our goal is to eliminate the stress and risks currently involved in the process of acquiring properties in Uganda.

World Bank and Bank of Uganda reports say Ugandan citizens in the diaspora have been sending home over a billion dollars over the last three years. In 2017, Ugandans in the diaspora sent home US $1.4 billion though that figure fell slightly due to Covid-19 global economic down-turn, diaspora remittance remained the country’s largest source of foreign exchange earnings.

The Ugandans in the Diaspora are estimated to be 1.5 million according to the UN Human Development Report 2009.

This in essence means that many will need to invest this money and real estate offers a wonderful vehicle for them. With a massive gap in housing demand vs supply, economic growth, rapid urbanization and an expanding middle class, the real estate sector offers an almost guaranteed Return on Investment.

Other challenges faced are; lack of opportunity and information to engage in trusted investments back home, high cost of finance, lack of products with attractive returns, lack of credible partners to represent their interests, and the inability to safely and conveniently transact and close a deal through a trusted representative. Yet, failing to invest when property prices are affordable and available is the biggest mistake anyone in the diaspora can make. They need to think about their future in a more proactive way where their investments will earn them income monthly.

“Residents in the diaspora need to think about their future proactively where their investments will earn them income monthly.”

Our vision is to see all Ugandans in the Diaspora participate in the development of their country, while securing their financial independence.

My experience with one of the developers i got from this portal was impressive. I got my Condo title within 2 month of finalising with my off-plan payment to an apartment in Najjera. To this day I lack the words to describe their impeccable job to their clients.
