I am looking for a business partner who will fund the construction of a retirement home for active retirees. Мy wife and I own a property ideal for this business.

One futuristic projection shows that by 2050 25% of the world’s population will be over 65 years old. Whether national social security systems will be able to care for the aged is already a major concern of developed economies and these governments are seeking ways to take care of their growing elderly segment of the population.
Many retirement homes and high end retirement villages are already present in the country. This tourism stream is expected to double in the next five years. As per General manager Veredigno Atienza from PRA (Philippine Retirement Authority): ”The government will conduct more road shows overseas to aggressively promote the Philippines as a major retirement destination for the world's retirees. The PRA for its part will soon be launching more product innovations aimed at these retirees.” He added that the Philippines hope to attract one to 10 million foreign retirees to the country in six years. These are high yield markets since these visitors stay longer and spend more during their visits.
