The leading telecoms operator in Sierra Leone, Orange SL, has through its Orange Money financial service platform, once again stepped in to ease the current stress of students seeking the University of Sierra Leone’s application pins.
Following the release of the West African Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) results, thousands of students seeking applications to the University of Sierra Leone were going through the herculean task, of queuing for long hours at the various bank outlets to purchase application pins.
However, the “Kombra” Orange-SL company has reversed the trend by bridging the gap of inclusivity, now making it easy for potential applicants to purchase their online application pins through the Orange Money platform.
To purchase the online application PIN, applicants can use Orange money service by dialling the short code #144*3*13#. Buying the online application pins will then grant students access to use the online application portal for the University of Sierra Leone. This is part of Orange Money’s expansion of financial access in the country.
