The client, Rosette, is a woman who specializes in the culinary arts in an international humanitarian organization.

She is the parent of one student who is regularly enrolled in university.

She was informed of new educational loan opportunities from IMF Hekima that can be used to pay school fees in advance. She will use this loan to pay her children’s school fees so that they will no longer be excluded from classes in the 2013-2014 school year.

This parent dreams of a better future for her daughter and would like to see her become a lawyer, business executive, university professor, member of parliament, etc.

In the end, she would like to recognize Hekima’s special initiative, and especially this social impact project during this period of reconstruction in the east of the country.

Additional Information

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.
