Batelco supports 500 SMEs tide over Covid-19

September 2020

Batelco announced its support for 500 small and medium enterprise (SME) customers through financial support towards their fixed internet cost for three months.

This initiative stems from the company’s keenness to support this segment of customers during these exceptional circumstances, particularly those who operate in the sectors most affected by the pandemic.

Continuously being close to the customers’ needs, Batelco recognised the extent to which these enterprises were affected, and also identified their importance to the local economy and surrounding business community.

This initiative serves to support the efforts being made by the government of Bahrain to assist the business sector during this pandemic, and forms part of Batelco’s commitment to giving back to the society in which it operates in its capacity as a proud member of Team Bahrain.

Commenting on this initiative, Abderrahmane Mounir, GM Enterprise Division at Batelco said: “At Batelco we pay great attention to our valued customers, including those from the business sector. Having recognised the importance of supporting the local economy during this time and supporting the government in its efforts against Covid-19, we have made the decision to offer financial support towards the fixed internet costs of the selected businesses during this time of uncertainty.

“We believe that this will have a positive impact on the continuity of these businesses, as their dependence on internet has increased due to the rise in the adoption of digital channels during this period.”

Batelco has selected the customers that will benefit from the initiative from the company’s database by applying well-defined and structured criteria, he added.
