About Jobomax: Building West African Futures

Quality Homebuilders with a Mission

Jobomax Homes was founded in 2014 to give West Africans in the diaspora and in the region access to the high-quality housing they deserve.

Our founders, a Guinean-American U.S. Air Force veteran and two former Peace Corps volunteers, were well-acquainted with the critical problems facing home buyers in West Africa. They closely studied the massive housing shortage, the scarcity of reliable infrastructure, and the total absence of viable housing finance options for home buyers. They decided to put their combined decades of regional and corporate expertise to good use by launching Jobomax Homes (originally called American Homebuilders of West Africa) as an innovative “one-stop shop” for trusted home ownership solutions.

Since then, Jobomax Homes has built a proven track record of quality, security, professionalism, and integrity. Our production home building techniques bring best-in-class quality housing to the region and give our clients the best value possible for their hard-earned investment. We have developed a range of housing models and financing solutions to fit virtually every budget. And with our professional, locally-based teams, we are proud to have created a sustainable business that delivers extraordinary value to our customers.

Our Core Values in West African Housing

Our work is driven by a deeply-held commitment to both our customers and to the larger West African community. We incorporate our core values into everything we do.

Housing Affordability & Financial Inclusion

We deliver the best value possible for our clients at every price point. In addition, our financing has provided millions of dollars to underbanked and underfinanced buyers.

Building a Local Talent Pipeline

We hire all local subcontractors and invest heavily in their skills training. 100% of our local leadership has been hired in-country and promoted from within.

Women’s
Empowerment

More than half of our buyers are women. Our advisory board is 40% female, and our construction supervision team is 20% female – 3x the U.S. average for the sector. By investing in a future that believes in their agency, leadership, and potential, we believe we're a stronger company.

Worker
Safety

We care deeply for our employees and subcontractors. Our industry-leading worker safety programs are reviewed weekly and include a designated safety manager, fall protection, and PPE guidelines.

Our partners

Our network of partners share our core values and bring their expertise in their respective fields, including architecture, design, construction, financing and consumer advocacy.

Our team

Whether you’re in Africa, the United States, or around the world, our friendly, knowledgeable team is ready to serve you.
