Kallo Inc the Canadian company involved in the loan deal is said tp provide comprehensive healthcare infrastructure using mobile clinics and fixed hospitals supported by a global telehealth system.

On June 26, 2020, the company finalised contracts with the Republic of Kenya and Techno-Investment Module Limited for a project contract and a finance contract. Under the terms of the agreement, Kenya is seeking to borrow the sum of 1,068,932,543 euros from TIM and the funds are to be used primarily to build phase one of a planned National Healthcare Infrastructure in the Republic of Kenya to be undertaken by Kallo Inc,” reads part of the SEC report.
