More information about this loan
HEKIMA is offering this loan to help this client, or a member of this client’s family, to access post-secondary education. Because tuition must be paid up front in HEKIMA’s operating area, where incomes are often small, it can be very difficult for students to pay tuition and access higher education. It allows students and students’ families to spread the cost of tuition out over 4-12 months. We believe this is the first loan product offering of its kind in the Kivu region.
