SPENN Technology A/S subsidiary SPENN Zambia Ltd has signed a memorandum of understanding with The Zambia National Marketers Credit Association (Zanamaca) for the inclusion of Zanamaca’s six million members on the SPENN platform.
The MoU entered into between Spenn Zambia Ltd and Zanamaca states that “Zanamaca shall ensure that more than six million people including Zanamaca’s members are registered on the SPENN Platform, while SPENN shall assist Zanamaca in registering these members on the TPIN Zambia Revenue Authority Platform for the purpose of payment of Base Tax and Social Security contribution under Zambia Revenue Authority and National Pension Scheme Authority respectively.”
President of Zanamaca, Mupila Kameya, says digital financial services are important to “free and save the six million informal sector operators – particularly marketers, traders, small-scale farmers, the bus and taxi drivers who are financially entrapped and enslaved in their own country.”
Zanamaca’s functions include among others, organizing and advancing the interests and welfare of marketers and traders as they contribute to national development.
The partnership with SPENN will provide such informal market operators with a way to pay levies to local authorities, which will ensure them social security and pension.
“The introduction of a the digital and mobile SPENN platform will enhance levy collection, which today is primarily based on cash payments. We provide a product that six million Zanamaca members will want to have,” says Jens Glasø, CEO of SPENN Technology A/S.
The MoU represents a milestone deal for SPENN, which currently has 450,000 users in Zambia.
“A Zanamaca deal allows SPENN to accelerate roll-out in Zambia and multiply the number of users within a short period of time,” says Glasø.
It is the intention of the parties to enter into a full agreement during a 6-week period, and for this agreement to be immediately disclosed to the market.
