Customer: Baffoe Kwadwo Sitolanasom
Amount received: 7,500 GHS [Approx. $1,664 USD]
Baffoe Kwadwo Sitolanasom, a 32 year old worker at Nkoranza Health Centre in the Ashanti Region, was contacted by an Airtel Sales Agent who assisted him to subscribe to the Airtel Insurance product. Baffoe opted for the Family Cover option which enabled him to include his son, John Sonnyinador Sitolanasom, to benefit from Airtel Insurance.
Five months after John was born, Busuama Health Centre detected difficulty in his movement and referred him to Sunyani Hospital for futher treatment. Sadly, after months of treatment at Nkoranza, on June 22nd 2017, John died.
After the final funeral rites, Baffoe dialled 580 to report the incident. The MicroEnsure Claims Team called and assisted him with the claim documentation process.
Once MicroEnsure had validated his claim documents, Baffoe received a life claim benefit of GHS 7,500 (approx. USD 1,664) on his Airtel Mobile Money wallet.
“Airtel brought comfort to my home in my time of despair”. He said the money will be used to cover the hospital and funeral expenses incurred.
Baffoe has been advised to update his Airtel Insurance details with a new family member.
