why Africans are increasingly investing in Africa

why Africans are increasingly investing in Africa | Re Africa News | Scoop.it

Investment in Africa from within Africa was once mainly the preserve of governments and high-net-worth individuals, but is presently buttressed by the world’s fastest growing middle class. According to research from the African Development Bank, the middle class, defined as those with a spending power of between $2 and $20 per day, presently encompasses one-third of Africa’s 1.1 billion people, a three-fold increase in the completed three decades. Since 2000, an estimated 31 million African households have joined the ranks of the middle class thanks to high economic increase.
