MTN Business today launched the MTN Made for Skhokho prepaid packages tailored for small and informal businesses. The MTN Made for Skhokho prepaid plans, which are the first prepaid bundles to launch in South Africa targeted specifically for business in the informal sector, provide greater value and flexibility to help businesses navigate the current tough economic conditions.
“Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and business in the informal sector play an important role in South Africa’s economy by providing employment opportunities as well as driving much-needed growth.
