MTC’s new initiative to aid rural communities
The Mobile Home on Wheels (MHOW) is MTC’s new product that will aim to bring them closer to the under-served areas as from July until September.
MTC will be travelling the entire breath and width of the country to areas and towns that do not have retail shops to bring them the mobile homes.
Time Ekandjo, Chief Human Capital and Corporate Affairs Officer at MTC said a lot of rural towns in the country have no access to MTC Commercial Services, forcing MTC customers to travel up to 100 km or sometimes more for a sim replacement or other services.
“Over the next 3 months the MHOW will follow a strict weekly schedule to ensure that towns have full Mobile home services at least once a week,” he added.
The MHOW will be geared via the 3G Network to ensure full Mobile home services to any customer visiting them and will follow strict schedule from the following spots as of June until August. Mondays at Nkurenkuru at Woerman Brock Shopping Centre, Tuesdays at Eenhana at Social Security Centre, Thursdays at Ruacana at Oshivo Complex and Fridays and Saturdays at Opuwo at NDC Complex.
The product is the company’s latest intervention, meant to address the services gap between rural and urban areas, and it is deliberately aimed to service those outlying areas where MTC retail shops services are unavailable due to geographical limitation.
