Isahit is committed to this mission!
Since its launch nine months ago, Isahit is engaged through its Isahit help program to support and assist hiteuses by providing access to the Internet (via access to local incubators), lending them a tablet if needed, helping them to Banca and supporting them in their efforts to obtain self-employed status. Isahit help also allows them to train and develop in digital competence with the help of Isahit representatives in local hubs.
To date, a hundred "workers/hiteuses" have been working on the Isahit platform since 5 countries in Francophone Africa (Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Senegal, Côte d'ivoire, Congo) and soon a dozen other countries will be opened. Isahit's ambition is within 4 to 5 years to give work to more than 30 000 people and thus to have an impact on more than 100 000 people.
