Fourteen Airtel Malawi subscribers have won in the first draw of Timaitha SMS promotion in a draw conducted in Lilongwe.
Among the lucky customers in a Blantyre Based guard who won a weekly prize of K100 000.
The guard, Daniel Makina who is working with B&C services, said the prize came at the right time when he was struggling with paying school fees for his children and buying farm inputs.
“This is the happiest moment of me, I just feel like being saved from the many problems I had,” he said
Speaking during the draw, Airtel Malawi Data and Vas Manager Thokozani Unyolo said the network is encouraged by the response from its customers and that a lot of lives are being transformed.
To reciprocate the support, Airtel has introduced a Double-Double Timaitha Friday in which two more subscribers of the network get K100 000 each.
According to Unyolo, the company has invested over K30 million in the promotion and will see one lucky customer winning a brand new KIA RIO as the grand prize at the end of the promotion.
To enter the promotion, customers will have to send an SMS written WINA to 50002 to register their names and answer trivia questions which in a way enhances their winning in the promotion.
For one to qualify into the daily draw, that subscriber will be required to accumulate a total of 50 points.
The promotion runs from December 27 to March 26 and entrenches Airtel’s pole position in value added services.
