Morocco Seeks to Supplant Slums
Morocco has helped to move thousands into the low-cost housing, but reasons for resisting the move are abundant.
"Some said they couldn't afford to pay the deposit for a mortgage, others that they were concerned about being relocated miles outside town.
Others said they'd rather stay in the slum with free accommodation, electricity and water, than risk falling behind on mortgage payments.
There's also a strong culture of home ownership in Morocco, which means that many people are reluctant to rent an apartment."
