With the current economic situation presented by the Covid 19 pandemic, many people remain stranded, looking for ways to make ends meet.
MTN Uganda through its promotion dubbed MoMoNyabo Together is giving its Mobile Money customers an opportunity to win up to Shs 5 million every week day in order to revamp their financial situations.
Even more interesting is that the winners get to share their cash prizes with their loved ones or communities in a bid to help one another recover from the pandemic‘s effects together, as suggested by the name of the promotion.
38 year old Aramathan Balikowa won Shs 4.2 million, having taken part in the MTN MoMoNyabo Together promotion, where all that was required of him was to use MTN’s mobile money service to automatically enter the draw.
Balikowa, a family man, farmer and shopkeeper was in shock when Zahara Tooto and Patricko Mujuuka, the show hosts called him, asked him questions that he mostly got right and informed him that he had become Shs 4.2 million richer overnight.
“God has a way He does His things and this is one of them,” an astonished Balikowa said as he received the money he had won from MTN’s Central Region Trade Manager, Jimmy Ssempuuma.
Ssempuuma congratulated Balikowa and thanked him for actively using the MTN MoMo Pay service.
“MTN is excited to transform and give back to its customers in ways that will support them during these tough times,” he said.
Balikowa who doubles as a shopkeeper and maize farmer in Kayunga says that during the lockdown. The businessman cum farmer was struggling to take care of his family of seven.
Having won Shs 4.2 million, Balikowa took Shs 2.6 million while his friend Rogers Ssemwanga received Shs 1.6 million.
According to Balikowa, Ssemwanga is a dependable friend who has stood with him during tough times over the years.
Balikowa intends to invest in his maize farm as well as restock his shop while Ssemwanga intends to use the money he won through his friend to revamp his mobile money business since it had been down because most of his clients who are fishermen have been out for work for close to five months.
Balikowa said he frequently used MoMoPay to pay for services like for solar and airtime among others by simply dialing *165# to access the mobile money service. He is now a millionaire.
Ssempuuma encouraged the residents of Galilaya village in Kayunga and all MTN Mobile Money customers to continue using MTN’s mobile money service such that they too can emerge as winners just like Balikowa.
Use Mobile Money to pay for everything including airtime, data, voice bundles, yaka, water, television subscription and so much more.
