BBOXX Kenya and MIC Kenya (part of MIC Global) are working together to provide a Micro Insurance health solution to BBOXX sales Agents. The insurance cover will protect the Agents in case of hospitalization, death and medical expenses due to an accident.
This is an income protection solution and will help the agents with cash back in their most difficulty times of either loss of life or Hospitalization.
BBOXX Capital started its operations in the year 2014 in Homabay, Kisumu with a goal to answer SDG 7,Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. With an accelerated growth based on need for clean energy solutions, BBOXX expanded its operations and is now present in 34 counties in Kenya. BBOXX has positively impacted over 500,000 Kenyans by providing clean, reliable, and affordable electricity to their homes, communities, and businesses for the first time. Every day, BBOXX team works hard to provide the best service to their customers and delivers an unparalleled improvement in the quality of life for rural and urban households
BBOXX has over 5000 sales agents who work hard to ensure solar equipment’s are distributed across the the 34 counties and BBOXX appreciates the effort that the sales agents enforce towards the goal and is due to this, BBOXX has offered to ensure that all the sales agents are insured as a way of an added benefit. In Kenya, most people who work as sales agents are locked out of extra benefits other than their commission fees and this has contributed to agents turn over in the industry. Is for this reason that BBOXX has taken a step to ensure that the agents are well considered and offered some cushion in their time of difficulty hence ensuring their peace of mind. The Hospitalization cover will play a big role to ensure that there is minimal agents turn over at BBOXX as well as setting BBOXX apart from other competitor companies in the industry in terms of safeguarding its sales representative.
Appreciating the partnership as another step towards the goal of reaching out to the tens of millions of uninsured and under-insured Kenyans, Ms. Wairimu Njoki, Country Manager, MIC Kenya, says
“We are delighted to be partnering with BBOXX Solar Limited to further MIC’s mission of providing innovative, ground breaking insurance solutions to the mass market across Africa with products and services that have the power to truly transform and improve lives”
As a way of promoting the global agenda of Universal Health Coverage (UHC), the cover offers BBOXX sales agents the freedom to visit any of the over 4,000 NHIF accredited hospitals and clinics across the country, to easily access medical care.
