The Social Security and National Insurance Fund (CNPS in French) announces that it has registered 111,812 voluntary contributors as at 30 June 2016. For the purpose of increasing the coverage rate in this contributor’s category, the Managing Director (MD) of this state institution, Alain Olivier Noël Mekulou Mvondo Akam, indicated during a meeting with his personnel that it will be necessary to “add a marketing module”.
The idea, according to the MD is to inform the populations through push SMS, already being prepared by the Information Systems department. Moreover, he directed the local managers towards partner microfinance establishments such as Express Exchange, Renaprov, Comeci or Unics, who deal directly with the populations benefiting from the voluntary insurance. Which will facilitate not only direct access to the target population, but also the payment of their contributions.
The MD of CNPS also invited his colleagues to “focus on workers in the informal sector and rural areas”, after discussions with self-employed workers. Secular arm of the Cameroonian State in terms of social security, it was on 1 December 2014 that this fund launched the registration of self-employed contributors in all its centres throughout the country.
