Having enough money to build your family a villa is a target most, if not all here aspire to. Villas are being built here in all shapes and sizes with the help of an architect to the house owners design . With a spare £50k in the bank you can self build something here that would cost you £1 -2 million in the UK.
The economy here is capitalist in the purest sense. With a weak government and corruption, money can get you anywhere or anything. Want to build on a plot of land that is a run-off point during the rains; no problem, just go ahead and build or pay-off the right people and its yours. People here build and buy to invest, show status and provide a communal living area for the extended family. Maybe life here is more about survival than in developed countries. I’ve heard people complaining that as people move away from the area it leaves only a few or just parents to look after large villas. There are many here that sit empty with their owners in the UK
