‘Farijika na Tigo Bima’ a new personal accident product for Tigo Pesa Customers

Purchase Personal Accident Cover worth up to TSH 3,000,000 TSH 

BIMA, the leading provider of mobile- elierved insurance in emerging markets, has launch a new product in partnership with Tigo Pesa, Tanzania. Togo Pesa customers will now be able to purchase BIMA Personal Accident Insurance for as little as 2,000 TSH, using their Tigo Pesa wallet. 

The launch of ‘Farijika na Tigo Bima’ represents a new way for Tigo customers to access valuable insurance, with all the security and control that comes when paying through a Tigo Pesa account. 

Farijika na Tigo Bima is the latest development from the long-standing partnership between Tigo and with  BIMA (known locally as MILVIK) , the global leader in mobile-delivered insurance. Together the companies already provide vital insurance cover to over 600, 000 Tanzanians.

Farijika na Tigo Bima has been designed to give customers maximum value, flexibility and control when purchasing insurance cover. There is a standard premium rate for all customers (aged between 18-65) and a straightforward choice from three different levels of coverage:

  • 2 months cover for 2,000 TSH
  • 6 months cover for 5,000 TSH 
  • 13 months cover for 10,000 TSH

Enrollment onto the product is incredibly easy, with no paper forms or checks required – customers can simply dial the hotline from their mobile phones, and register on the spot. Once covered, Tigo Bima’s Personal Accident Insurance will provide up to TSH 3,000,000 in cover. BIMA operates a fair and transparent claims process, and promises to pay all valid claims within 72 hours of filing. 

Christian Karlander, Country Manager for MILVIK BIMA commented, “We believe that insurance is incredibly valuable and provides financial security at the times when people need it most. Our ambition is to widen access to insurance so that every Tanzanian has the chance to access the kind of cover that is right for them. The launch of Farijika na Tigo Bima helps us achieve this goal by enabling customers to purchase or renew their cover in one simple, secure step”.
