MOTHER OF THREE WINS SECOND HOUSE IN SAFARICOM’S LIPA NA M-PESA PROMOTION

Tuesday, January 19, 2016… Lydia Maina from Kaptembwa, Nakuru County is the latest winner of the Lipa Na M-PESA – Shinda 3 Bedroom Promotion launched by Safaricom last month.

Lydia, in her late thirties, is a mother of three, working as a secretary at Mother Kelvin Medical Center, Nakuru. She also runs a successful gas distribution business.

She has won a fully furnished house worth Ksh.14 Million in the promotion that was geared at optimizing Lipa Na M-PESA usage during the festive period and at the beginning of the year.

“I was at work when I received a call from a strange number, informing me that I had won a house.  I did not believe it at first, and it’s only when they called me for the third time that I confirmed that I had indeed won a house,” said Ms. Maina.

“I had paid my paid my electricity bill through Lipa Na M-PESA and did not think much of it until I got the surprise call. Although I have not yet decided what to do with the house, I will forever be grateful to Safaricom for this gift,” she added.

Lipa na M-PESA is increasingly being used by a growing number of Kenyan individuals and merchants who are keen to utilize technology to ease the payments process.

“This competition is a befitting testament of how Safaricom is Transforming Lives by not only availing a reliable and safe channel to have transactions, but also by recognising customers and merchants who use the service,” said Rita Okuthe, Director – Safaricom Business.

“Handing over this house to Lydia and her family, we are certain this will be a life changing experience for them. It is our hope that this house will not only impact their lives positively but will also change their fortunes,” she added.

The promotion targets consumers who make their payments using Lipa na M-PESA as well as merchants, with prizes valued at Ksh.118 million to be won.

Two other customers stand to win houses valued at Ksh. 14 million each in the promotion, with 18,000 merchants set to win airtime or cash directly to their tills during the promotion that runs until January 25th 2016.

The Lipa Na M-PESA platform currently has over 32,000 active merchants across the country. Since its launch, the service has received huge uptake and customers can now pay their bills across various businesses using Lipa Na M-PESA as an alternative and preferred mode of payment.
