BlackBerry® is a brand of mobile smartphone devices developed and designed by the Canadian based Research In Motion (RIM).

It has functions such as personal digital assistants, portable media players, Internet browsers, gaming devices, and much more.

It is also primarily known for its ability to send and receive push email and instant messages while maintaining a high level of security through on-device message encryption.

MTN Rwanda has partnered with KCB Rwanda in offering a facility that can allow their customers to own a BlackBerry® smart phone on loan.

The partnership allows MTN customers and KCB eligible account holders to purchase a BlackBerry® handset including one year subscription and pay in 12 instalments.

Customers can visit any MTN Service center to pick an invoice for the BlackBerry® device of their choice, apply for a KCB loan and thereafter enjoy BlackBerry® services.

According to KCB Rwanda’s Managing Director, Maurice K. Toroitich, since Rwanda’s banking industry is at a competitive crossroad, building partnerships with a company like MTN Rwanda as a new contender in the financial industry would facilitate a new form of competition.

“Consumer banking will only accelerate if services offered by financial institutions like KCB converge with services and products offered by leading telecom players like MTN Rwanda. Telecom companies are now offering services like Mobile Money, which are contenders in our industry. So in order to create meaningful competition we prefer to build partnerships”

In Rwanda MTN is the only provider of BlackBerry® devices and service.

MTN Rwanda’s Chief Executive Officer Khaled Mikkawi said that this communication campany is proud to be working in strategic partnership with KCB Rwanda and we feel that the combination of the innovation offered by BlackBerry® services and the KCB Rwanda customer focus will be a unique and successful partnership.

The partnership is also in line with MTN Rwanda’s commitment to support the development of Rwanda’s knowledge-based economy, by offering relevant innovations in ICT, Mikkawi added.
