In an effort to promote efficiency in the distribution of its airtime around the country, Airtel Zambia has donated 19 bicycles to three talk time distributors in Ndola who met the daily target for the month of August.
The three distributors include Copperbelt Shoes which received eight bicycles; with Yappies getting eight and three went Mabulelo.
Speaking during the presentation ceremony at Airtel offices in Ndola, Copperbelt territorial manager Stephen Manyele said his company decided to appreciate the work done by its distributors, hence the presentation of the bicycles.
Manyele said the bicycles would ease movement for the distributors whom he described as being important to the growth of their business.
“Our distributors are essential to the growth of our business and we appreciate their work which have pushed the business to the next level,” Manyele said.
He said all the distributors were given daily targets which they met but the three got the highest number of subscribers.
Manyele said the company would also appreciate its distributors who would meet the daily targets for the month of September and various prizes had already been set aside for them.
