The Nancy B. Doe market came alive over the weekend as two Liberian women walked away with a brand-new Ford Figo vehicle and a Hero motorbike respectively.
The two received their prizes during a special Orange musical concert held as part of the 2017 MSME Conference organized by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
Ms. Bendu Tolongo, a Liberian College student was the first to receive her prize.
The Hero Motorbike was presented to her by Mr. Isaac Muthama, Orange Liberia Chief Sales Officer.
She was the 6th person to receive a motorbike in the Orange “This year, Christmas starts in October” promotion.
The previous week winner of the Hero motorbike was also a Liberian woman named Comfort Harris from Margibi, Kakata.
Although neither of them knew how to operate a bike, before winning, they both confided that they would learn to ride because owning a bike would significantly reduce their transportation costs.
“I’m a student,” said Bendu Tolongo, “and the cost of transportation to get to school is very high.
At least with this bike I can put it in traffic to make money to pay my fees and when I need to go somewhere, it will take me directly there.”
The winner of the brand-new Ford Fego received her prize from the Chief Marketing Officer of Orange Liberia Mr. Noel Chateau.
Mrs. Yah Domah is a resident of Duport Road in Paynesville who currently sells flour and donuts as her source of income, said she never imagined that she’d ever own a vehicle.
“Orange has made me a millionaire today,” she announced after receiving the keys to the car, “they did not give me one million dollars, but they give me something I never thought I would have so they have made me rich!”
The winners won the prizes as part of the ongoing “with Orange, this year, Christmas starts in October” promotion.
There are still two more cars, a Renault Logan and a Toyota 4×4 Rav4 and four Hero motorbikes to be won. Orange customers simply need to recharge a minimum of $1 per week to stand a chance to win the motorbike and to recharge two weeks in a row to stand a chance to win vehicle a car.
