Life insurance: With SONAR FREE INVEST, contribute freely from 100 FCFA per day

The National Insurance and Reinsurance Company (SONAR), in collaboration with Moov Africa Burkina, launched this Friday, May 27, 2022 in Ouagadougou, its brand new product called “SONAR FREE INVEST”. This is a quick and easy mechanism that allows low-income people to pay their dues freely via Moov Money.

Insurance for everyone in just a few clicks. It is now possible with the SONAR Group and its partner Moov Africa Burkina, both leaders respectively in the field of insurance and mobile telephony. Called “SONAR FREE INVEST”, this innovation was launched late Friday afternoon during a ceremony at the Bravia Hotel, in the presence of several partners.

A boon for the informal sector and associations

According to the general manager of the SONAR Group, Thomas Zongo, “SONAR FREE INVEST” is “a savings and capitalization product which allows the insured to build up, through free contributions from 100 CFA francs per day, a capital payable at the end of the contract. »

According to him, the market study carried out before the development of the product showed, on the one hand, that a section of the population is excluded from the classic insurance system, and on the other hand, that despite their desire to contribute, some people could not find reliable players to secure the savings they strive to contribute every day or according to their ability to contribute.

The launch ceremony brought together the staff of the two companies, but also actors from the informal sector.

SONAR FREE INVEST is therefore a godsend for actors in the informal sector such as traders, farmers, mechanics, craftsmen, etc. but also associations and groups. The general manager of the SONAR Group will say that Moov Money customers will be able to “save serenely at their own pace, pay the premiums for all SONAR-VIE insurance policies, receive payment for benefits in their Moov Money account and finally consult the characteristics of their SONAR-VIE insurance policies.

How to subscribe?

To subscribe, the customer must dial *555*3*2*1*1*2#. Then, he can choose the periodicity of the contribution, fill in the duration of the contribution then validate by typing his secret code. A validation message will be sent to him. To subscribe to the Death + Total and irreversible loss of autonomy (PTIA) option, the user must send to (00226) 01 24 31 31 “contract number + Death Guarantee or PTIA” to guarantee a capital of 250,000 F CFA for his relatives against an annual bonus of 1,200 CFA francs.

Then, the customer benefits at any time from the fruits of his contract by requesting a partial or total redemption or by taking out a repayable advance with interest and administration fees.
