For this our project needs money

We would like to build a sustainable, future-oriented and social housing-, culture- and educational-project in Kirnhalden. It should make a meaningful contribution to a sustainable society. This requires ideas, skills, time and also money.

For the purchase of the site, the renovation of the buildings, the inventory of the seminar business and the café, as well as for shaping the landscape, we need about 6 million euros in the initial years. We will contribute a certain part as project group. We will finance a large part through bank and private loans and repay it gradually over the coming years.

Our financing concept

The members of the cooperative “Wohn- und Kulturprojekt Kirnhalden e.G” contribute at least 15-20% of the investment costs in the form of business shares as so-called equity capital. This also includes investing members who acquire business shares without living on site.

In addition, the cooperative takes out loans from the bank and supporting private individuals (currently only members of the cooperative). With this money Kirnhalden is bought, redeveloped and developed.

The residential and commercial areas are then rented out by the cooperative:
– The residents pay a residential rent.
– The commercial users of the offices pay an office rent.
– A share of the rent is deducted from the income of the seminar and guest operations.
– Likewise, a share of the rent is deducted from the income of the café.

With this regular rental income, the cooperative pays back the various loans over the years, or builds up liquidity to pay out the shares of investing members again upon termination.
