PNB Housing Finance said it has signed an agreement with Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Citibank to raise USD 100 million (about Rs 762 crore) for providing loans in the affordable housing segment.

The company has signed an agreement with JICA to raise USD 75 million and with Citibank for USD 25 million, a release said.

“We express our gratitude to JICA and Citi for partnering with us in their journey towards improving the lives of low-income households and promoting sustainable economic growth in India. This would be JICA's first debt funding in the housing finance sector in the country,” the company's managing director Sanjaya Gupta said.
