About Clecam Ejo-Heza Ltd
CLECAM EJO-HEZA Ltd is a Microfinance institution created in 2007 although it has a long history before this date because it resulted from the merging of two other microfinance institutions namely CLECAM and EJOHEZA. All these institutions have been created by farmers as their financial arms.
A survey conducted by ICCO/AMREP in 2004 revealed that the two microfinance institutions (CLECAM and EJOHEZA) were serving the same target population, the same products in the same operational zone and the survey recommended these MFIs to merge up and form one strong and sustainable MFI.
After debate and in collaboration with INGABO Syndicate and UGAMA CSC, the two microfinance institutions merged up and formed CLECAM-EJOHEZA (Coopérative Locale d’Epargne et Crédit Agricole Mutuelle) on January 31st, 2007. At that date, five cooperatives were created under this same name of CLECAM-EJOHEZA namely CLECAM-EJOHEZA Muhanga, CLECAM-EJOHEZA Ruhango, CLECAM-EJOHEZA Kabagali, CLECAM-EJOHEZA Kamonyi and CLECAM-EJOHEZA Ndiza with their union UNICLECAM-EJOHEZA.
It is in the year 2015 that these cooperatives along with their union took decision to merge up again and transform into a company limited for them to become a Microfinance institution in the name of CLECAM-EJOHEZA Ltd located in Muhanga district, in southern province of Rwanda.
From then, CLECAM EJO HEZA Ltd has been providing financial and non-financial services to the farmers of its operational zone and while still maintaining the spirit of member participation. The new registration gave the organization more room to expand and grow its client base and to provide a greater range of services to its clients.
