Welcome to Orange Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone has 6.4 million inhabitants, many of which live in rural areas. The country’s GIP grew by 4.3% in 2016, with an inflation of more than 9.7% (Source: IMF. October 2016). Its economy has been weakened by its dependency on the US dollar.

The subsidiary was acquired by Orange in July 2016. It has 1.5 million customers. As population’s mobile coverage and mobile penetration rates are low, the country therefore has a strong growth potential. In an environment where the percentage of people with bank accounts is low, almost one out of two customers is involved in Orange Money’s activities. Ultimately, international communications, liberalized in April 2016, offer a growth opportunity.
