May 10, 2018— MTN Uganda, the telecom company, has launched a package targeting small business owners and their need to control costs due to limited capital.
Speaking at the launch of the Tukole Campaign, Tadeo Bwire, the MTN Senior Manager SME Sales said the communication and business solutions package being offered is aimed at making entrepreneurs and SMEs work smarter to sustainably grow faster.
“We have launched comprehensive solutions that have three key offers: Business Booster Packs targeted at start-ups and SMEs, Unlimited and Dedicated Business Internet powered by MTN Fibre targeted at businesses and organisations with larger internet needs and finally Mobile Money Solutions for businesses,” Bwire said.
He said the solutions are revolutionary and in line with the MTN vision of delivering a bold, new digital world to their customers.
Sophia Mukasa, the Senior Manager, Enterprise Products and Marketing at MTN Uganda.“For many businesses, whether large or small, access to affordable communication channels remains crucial to their success. The solutions we have launched today will provide them value both in the short and long term”
Bwire said, “Tukole’ is a Luganda word meaning ‘Let’s Work Together’. We are here to say that MTN Uganda is the right partner for your business, no matter the size or stage of development, everywhere you go. So let us work together to guarantee your success.”
MTN Uganda has promised users will become more efficient by ensuring sustainability in the cost of doing business in both the short and long term.
“It is clear that all these entrepreneurs and SMEs in Uganda are looking for enablers of progress because it is always a tough journey starting and running a business. That is why MTN Uganda is providing more integrated communication and business solutions for this category of businesses that have been largely un-catered for,” Mukasa said.
Uganda was in June 2015, said to be one of the most entrepreneurial nation by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) report, beating 72 other nations in the ranking. The report discovered that out of an average of 10 Ugandans, three were entrepreneurs.
