In a bid to increase access to the newly launched Timba and Tsongolo policies, Old Mutual has intensified marketing activation to all cities in Malawi.
Timba Family plan and Tsongolo Saving plan are designed to meet the needs of Malawians and instill a saving culture to ensure that Malawians live a better life and have something to rely on in case of emergencies such as death.
Old Mutual Marketing and Communications Manager Patience Chatsika, said the company has embarked on an awareness campaign on the two products, to reach out to all people.
“We want to be closer to the customer, providing them first-hand information, it’s our first time to be in the retail market (non digital), therefore face to face makes more sense as part of our distribution strategy for these products,” Chatsika said.
Commenting on customer’s response towards the products, Chatsika said the company was satisfied with the response from the public as evidenced by the number of people buying the policies.
“The response is positive. People are buying. However, we need to enhance our premium collection proposition; we are working towards closing all gaps,” she said.
She said the two are unique in the sense that its premiums are low, and time it takes to pay out claims is unmatched, suitable for Malawian.
“ The policies allows members to withdraw without disturbing the investments, cashback on timba after 3 years on no claim, serviced at their work place by a dedicated financial advisor,” she added.

Tsongolo Savings Plan offers two savings pockets as part of one Plan, with a single monthly premium. It has both the long pocket and a short term pocket.
