If you type the both variations (between quotations) at google.com, you'll notice there will be more results from "afford to buy" (at about 2 millions results); whereas typing "afford buying" you're going to encounter at about 60 thousand results. Thus, both forms are acceptable in my opinion, in despite of the latter being pretty unusual.
