Equity bank in partnership with Equitel, Britam insurance, and inclusivity solutions have come up with a product that may interest you as an Equitel user. The Riziki cover is a personal insurance cover that Equitel subscribers can now access without paying a dime. This cover will ease the financial burden resulting from the daily income lost from one’s employment or personal business due to cases of hospitalization.
The Riziki personal cover works as follows. If you are an Equitel subscriber and you use over 100/= worth of airtime and transact more than 1000/= via your equitel line per month, you automatically qualify for this service. As an Equitel subscriber, you can as well subscribe for this service by dialing *745# for activation.
