About Ilara Health

At Ilara Health, we equip a network of small, peri-urban healthcare providers with life-saving and

essential diagnostic tools to improve the quality of medical care across sub-Saharan Africa. As

informal businesses, these clinics, and pharmacies lack access to the traditional financial services

that SMEs use to support their growth. Through smart financing options, Ilara Health connects

these small businesses to revenue-generating diagnostic assets that enable them to develop their

business and improve the quality of care they provide to their patients.
