The United Arab Bank (UAB) has recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Housing Establishment (MBRHE), under which, the UAB would offer housing finance solutions to the UAE nationals who are under the umbrella of Al Yusr program.

Additionally, the UAB will provide beneficiaries with two Shariah-compliant segments of facilities including, the finance up to AED 750,000 with no interest rates, and a second financing option according to the UAB's policy for financing and interest rates.

“Through this partnership, we will provide the UAE citizens with a number of practical solutions that would help ease housing finance. This comes as part of our endeavors to realize housing stability, in accordance with the wise vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, in terms of developing the housing system and providing the demands of the contemporary world,” Gargash pointed out.

For that reason, we have inked this agreement, through which, we will offer a number of opportunities and solutions to those who are willing to obtain housing finance, along with flexible repayment schemes.”
