Orange Sierra Leone, on the 6th and 7th July, 2022 commissioned two new franchise shops in the northern and eastern provinces of Sierra Leone out of the main objective of providing easy access for its customers as well as to strengthen its distribution channels.
The shops, which are now fully functional, are providing products and services to residents on Dama Road in Kenema district, East of the country and Kamakwie, Karene District in the North.
It must be noted that the Orange franchise model has been a great pillar to the company’s commercial activities making accessible Orange, Orange Money and new business products and services within urban and semi-urban areas.
Similar franchise shops have been launched and commissioned in other parts of the country bringing the total to 30.
Over a year ago, Orange Sierra Leone commissioned a franchise shop in the southern town of Zimmi for which residents were pleased and elated.
With the shop in their community, they now enjoy easy access to Orange products and services.
Late last year, Orange Sierra Leone turned the sod for the construction of a US$15m Data Centre in Bo City, Southern Sierra Leone which will serve as a redundancy center in the provinces.
Work on the Data Centre is currently in progress and hopefully will be commissioned soon and such will augment the main Data Centre facility in Freetown.
The company is also on the move to have more sites in Sierra Leone for easy communication.
As a result of all the qualitative services the telecommunications company is providing, Orange-SL, remains an endearing business entity in the country with the sole aim of improving lives with the offering of wonderful digital experiences.
