Sanlam Kenya, a prominent non-bank finance solutions provider, is thrilled to announce a game-changing partnership with Little App, a leading digital ride-hailing solutions firm. Together, they are introducing “Shift Your Destiny,” a revolutionary life insurance cover under Sanlam Life Insurance, tailored to offer financial security for the families of Little App drivers in the event of bereavement or permanent disability.
Drivers can easily enroll for this exceptional insurance coverage within the Little Driver’s App, which offers a choice of three distinctive packages. This coverage provides crucial support within just 48 hours, granting invaluable assistance in the form of school fees and rent payments to the families of drivers facing the loss of life or permanent disability.
During the official signing of this partnership, Dr. Patrick Tumbo, the CEO of Sanlam Kenya Group, expressed his enthusiasm for this collaboration, emphasizing that it aligns with Sanlam’s unwavering commitment to enhancing product offerings, digitizing distribution channels, and delivering services more efficiently to the market.
Dr. Tumbo elaborated, “We are redefining insurance by reimagining the distribution model, ensuring that our products reach the uninsured population across the nation, leaving no stone unturned.”
Kamal Budhabhatti, the Chief Executive Officer of Little, echoed this sentiment, saying, “This partnership is a crucial step in our ongoing efforts to prioritize the welfare of our drivers, who are our primary stakeholders. Our ultimate aim is to empower our drivers with access to a comprehensive suite of financial services that cater to their long-term investment needs, enabling growth for all.”
He went on to say, “With the Little Super-App, we are dedicated to delivering an unparalleled customer and product experience for both our drivers and riders.”
This partnership is set to kick off with the enrollment of 10,000 drivers under the coverage, accompanied by financial literacy training for an additional 30,000 individuals to raise awareness about the significance of insurance and its associated benefits.
The “Shift Your Destiny” insurance product boasts a wide range of features, including comprehensive family protection, accidental benefits for permanent disability, flexible payment options, affordability, simplified onboarding, and a streamlined claims process. Perhaps most notably, benefits are payable within an industry-leading 48 hours, and policyholders can also enjoy a 10% no-claim cashback.
