Safaricom (NSE: SCOM) has awarded the fourth winner of a three-bedroom apartment in the ongoing Lipa Na M-PESA promotion.

Salma Salim Mohammed, a hotelier and receptionist at the Sarova Whitesands, Mombasa is the new homeowner of the three-bedroom apartment located in Riruta, Nairobi.

“I am an avid Lipa Na M-PESA customer which sees me frequenting outlets that accept payment through the service as it saves me from the hassle of walking around with cash. In my wildest dreams, I have never pictured myself winning in any promotion and I am glad that for the first time in my life I have won such an amazing prize as a house,” said Salma.

Salma who is married with a five-year-old child had been previously working in Rwanda before moving back to Kenya in 2019 with her current employer.

Her win brings the total number of apartments awarded in the promotion so far to four, with two more apartments set to be awarded over the next fortnight. In addition, customers also stand to win 8 tractors kitted with a trailer and plow at the promotion’s grand finale, with one each for eight regions.

“At Safaricom, we strive to transform lives and make a positive impact on our customers. This promotion goes beyond the convenience, speed, and safety of making and receiving payments on Lipa Na M-PESA, providing our customers with one more reason to celebrate through the different prizes,” said Sateesh Kamath, Chief Finance Officer, Safaricom.

The promotion has also seen 80 businesses drive home with 80 tuk-tuks, ten each in the eight regions. Businesses that accept Lipa Na M-PESA payments still stand to win 40 more tuk-tuks, five in each region. The grand finale will also see eight business owners drive off with eight 12 tonne Fuso FI trucks, one in each of the eight regions.

Safaricom has also been awarding surprise cashback to 8 customers every minute, one in each region, for making payments through Lipa Na M-PESA, with merchants receiving 25 percent of the Lipa Na M-PESA transaction charges as a cashback every night.

The promotion continues until 5th March 2020 and is open to both customers and businesses who make and receive payments through Lipa Na M-PESA. Customers and businesses will receive 1 entry for every KES 100 paid or received through the service.

Promotion entries can be tracked by dialing *234*1*8#.
