The startup provides a point-of-need credit facility for primary health care. In Nigeria and many other African countries, patients unable to pay their hospital bills are detained in the hospital. This leads to congested hospitals and in the worst case, patients end up sicker than when they arrived at the hospital. Anyi Health aims to solve this through a mobile-based point-of-need credit facility, where patients can apply for credit directly at the hospital. The startup was founded by Amara Muoneke and George Mosomi.
