MTN Uganda has re-launched the second phase of MTN Gaggawala promotion with more cash and more life changing prizes. Over forty Mobile Money Kiosks are lined up to be with start-up capital worth over 480 million up for grabs for winners in the eight weeks promotion.
MTN officials say the move aims at creating an enabling environment for ordinary people to start business and become SMEs. All they have to do is load airtime worth 10,000 shillings or more in a week (Monday to Sunday) to be entered into the weekly draw to win a MTN Mobile Money kiosk and 2,500,000 shillings as start-up capital.
MTN Uganda General Manager Financial Services, Phrase Lubega urged the public to participate in the life changing opportunity.
“The more a customer loads in a week, the more entries they will be entitled to and this will increase their chances of winning. Every 10,000 shillings worth of airtime loaded in a week is an entry in the draw. We shall have five winners, coming from each of the five regions and the campaign will run for 8 weeks. A total of 40 kiosks will be given out each with a combined value of approximately 8,500,000 shillings including the MTN Mobile Money kiosk, the Agent Kit, Mobile Financial Services training, Point of Sale collateral, Gagawala merchandise and other related materials to kick off their business”. Phrase added.
Running concurrently with Gagawala is the MTN Cash box activations which will happen in the different regions during the course of the eight weeks. Three activations per region per week for eight week will see Cash box activations participants grab as much cash as they can within the cash box. For customers to participate in the cash box activation, they will be required to load airtime of minimum 1000 shilling on the spot and have their numbers written down on a piece of paper and entered into a draw. Two lucky customers whose numbers are drawn will enter the cash box and exhibit their skills in grabbing money.
The MTN Gagawala promotion was first launched last month and rewarded over 100 winners each winning one million shilling every day. The winners were drawn from across the country and all they had to do was load airtime worth 1000 shillings and enter daily draws.
“We are very happy with the response our customers have shown towards the MTN Gagalawa promotion which is aimed at changing the lives of Ugandan by winning free cash from MTN. We believe one million is a good start to changing somebody’s life. The Gagawala two is even bigger and better with more cash and prizes which we are hopeful will change lives significantly” said Mapula Bodibe, MTN Uganda Chief Marketing Officer
Mapula added that the promotion is part of MTN’s ways of bonding with its customers by creating an enabling environment for personal success.
