Determined to boost digital inclusion in the country, MTN Uganda today launched its Kabode Supa smartphone under its “pay Mpola Mpola” device financing scheme, which allows customers to pay for their smartphone in installments.
With an initial deposit of only UGX99,000, a customer can get the Kabode Supa smartphone and make monthly, weekly, or daily installments as low as UGX833 for 6 months to own the device. The phone comes with 2GB of free MTN data every month for the next seven months upon purchase. All data bundle purchases made in the first 3 months also come with a 100% bonus.
MTN Kabode Supa is a 4G-enabled smartphone and has a 5-inch screen, 3GB RAM, 8GB on-board storage, 2MP front camera, and 8MP rear camera with a 5,000mAh battery.
At the launch of the phone today in Kampala, Ian Mugambe, Segment Manager at MTN Uganda said the device financing scheme “mpola mpola”, aims to ensure that everyone has access to ICT and digital services, noting that the Kabode Supa smartphone is the latest smartphone MTN is offering customers on these favorable and affordable payment terms
“At MTN, we believe that everyone deserves to enjoy the benefits of a modern connected life so we are excited to champion smartphone adoption and penetration in Uganda in order to witness the next chapter in Uganda’s digital inclusion journey,” Mugambe said.
In 2020, MTN Uganda introduced a device financing scheme dubbed ‘mpola mpola’ with the aim of ensuring the affordability of handsets for Ugandans across the country by accepting payment in installments.
The MTN Kabode Supa smartphone is available at all MTN shops countrywide. Upon payment of the initial deposit of UGX99,000, the customer goes away with their phone and completes payment through installments of UGX833 daily, UGX6,250 weekly, or UGX25,000 for the monthly installment option.
