LIPA LATER PARTNERS WITH RETAILERS TO GIVE LAPTOPS FOR SCHOOLS INTEREST FREE.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected people globally, taken a toll on people across the world and disrupted most if not all of our usual daily activities. One of the sectors that has been affected the most is education. Most people if not all did not foresee this virus coming, and even though the world is going digital, it is still understandable to see why some parts of the education sector have been caught flatfooted on how to shift learning seamlessly to a digital space. With most learning institutions closed and students and teachers learning and teaching online from home, the question begs, do all of them have the necessary devices to continue learning? According to Usawa Agency, 80% of students and teachers can’t access online learning.
Lipa Later, a consumer financing tech company based in Nairobi that has partnered with over 500 retailers is looking to improve this. Through the years, Lipa Later as the name suggests, has enabled both individuals and institutions access to technology such as laptops, tablets and mobile phones with the advantage of purchasing and paying for it later using an affordable monthly plan.
In a bid to help institutions, teachers, parents and students to continue education online, Lipa Later has partnered with selected Laptop retailing merchants to offer interest free laptops for students and teachers alike. This means teachers and students can get to use these laptops as they pay for it at retail price in a minimum of 3 monthly installments at 0% interest.
Eric Muli, the CEO of Lipa Later believes that “Education is a key contributing factor to the economy and everyone has the right to access it.’’ We want to help ease the process of online learning by partnering up with retailers to provide laptops for schools, that is, teachers and the students. All this will enable our students and teachers to have a laptop, attend their classes and not miss out on any lessons or assignments. The laptops will without a doubt allow efficient digital learning, teaching and real time accessibility to teachers and the students. Teachers will continue with the syllabus, have organized teaching material, backup and storage and institutions can resume their curriculum.
