(Business in Cameroon) - To give its clients control over their consumption, Eneo, the Cameroonian utility company, launched a prepaid service. According to the company, the prepaid service is a solution that “allows clients to tailor their consumption to their budget. The clients control their consumption thanks to an extended reloading offer available 24 hours a day.”
To ensure the proper functioning of this service, Eneo plans to create a network of partners from which its prepaid clients will purchase their subscriptions.
In its 2018 business review, Eneo revealed that at least three partners are already operational. These partners are namely, Orange Money, Ecobank Cameroon and AfrikPay, a mobile payment service much liked by local companies according to one of the national institute for statistics’ surveys.
Eneo plans to densify its partners’ network by including groups like MTN, UBA and Société Générale Cameroon. Discussions are ongoing with these groups.
Let’s note that in 2018, Eneo installed 1,300 prepaid electricity meters in households in Cameroon and plans to install 20,000 more this year.
