MTN Business today launched the MTN Made for Skhokho prepaid packages tailored for small and informal businesses. The MTN Made for Skhokho prepaid plans, which are the first prepaid bundles to launch in South Africa targeted specifically for business in the informal sector, provide greater value and flexibility to help businesses navigate the current tough economic conditions.
“Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and business in the informal sector play an important role in South Africa’s economy by providing employment opportunities as well as driving much-needed growth. Added to the recent negative impact brought on by COVID-19, SMEs continue to face many headwinds, including the high cost of running a business, excessive red tape, lack of access to markets, financing and technical knowledge,” says Wanda Matandela, Chief Business and Enterprise Officer at MTN Business.
“The MTN Made for Skhokho prepaid package is designed to help by addressing connectivity challenges so that SMEs can thrive and enjoy all the benefits and opportunities of the modern, connected world.”
MTN believes in the power of small businesses to drive change and sees it as a priority to ensure this sector receives the necessary support to succeed.
MTN Business offers small, medium, and large bundle packages with validity of 7 days, 14 days and 30 days respectively.
Below is the breakdown of packages
Small businesses are the backbone of local communities and an engine-room for jobs and growth. They have the power to transform – but to do that they must be connected all the time and it is our aim, with constant innovation and best quality network, to deliver solutions that add value to their businesses,” concludes Matandela.
To make MTN Made for Skhokho more accessible to wider SMEs, MTN Business has made it easy for SMEs to purchase these plans as customers do not need to be a registered business to get these packages.
Customers can simply register for MTN Made for Skhokho plans on the Made for Skhokho portal thereafter recharge using the MTN App.
