He further noted the allocation of EGP 1 billion ($21 million) for Koun’s construction work in 2024.

Idris said the company holds ambitious plans to invest EGP 15 billion ($318 million) within the Egyptian market over the next three years. This includes a new residential project in Assiut governorate and another in East Cairo. Additionally, the company is exploring potential development sites in New Zayed and New Sphinx cities.

Regarding financing solutions, Idris explained, "We primarily rely on self-financing, but have recently incorporated other options such as securitisation. Additionally, a long-term financing agreement has been established with the National Bank of Egypt, alongside a cooperation protocol enabling us to secure further financing from the bank if needed."

Mabany Idris portfolio comprises more than 12 residential, commercial, and mixed-use projects across West Cairo and Upper Egypt.
