SPENN, together with I&M Bank (Rwanda) Plc. has launched a new partnership with Yego, allowing all SPENN users to pay for Yego taxis and motos using SPENN.
With the partnership with Yego, SPENN continues to support Rwanda’s mission to go cashless by enabling easy, quick and free payments of Yego taxi services.
In these times of uncertainty due to COVID-19, SPENN, together with I&M Bank Plc., continues to work to ensure Rwandans have all necessary features in their SPENN Application to allow them to go cashless.
Haguma, country manager of SPENN Rwanda said, “We understand that during this time, the priority is the safety of our people. Taxi motos are the most convenient mode of transport to many Rwandans and by enabling SPENN as a method of payment, SPENN users are given the ability to transact safely without paying extra fees”.
SPENN is committed to integrating with companies such YEGO to create a complete digital economy ecosystem in Rwanda. Our unique approach is that we don’t charge a commission. Added Norbert Haguma.
The partnership with Yego begins right after SPENN has launched a savings account which is completely cost free, has no minimum deposit requirements, pays 4% annual interest and gives users the freedom to withdraw and deposit funds anytime, anywhere.
Having YEGO as a partner is a great achievement and a way to reach out to many Rwandans to become cashless while transacting on SPENN at zero fee. Payment on the YEGO meters is easy, simple and instant.
