Following the successful completion of a lease agreement, at an event hosted at the Hilton Hotel Addis Ababa on March 25, Ethio Lease, Ethiopia’s first privately held equipment leasing firm, transferred a state-of-the-art Ophthalmic microscope worth more than ETB5 million to WGGA Eye Center.
The transfer of the ophthalmic microscope is part of a series of high-tech medical equipment leasing agreements made by Ethio Lease with medical and diagnostic centers throughout the country. The equipment enables WGGA Eye Center to perform advanced vision correction treatments and procedures for eye diseases and disorders, as well as diagnostics and comprehensive eye examinations.
Ethio Lease has been providing leasing services to alleviate equipment shortages in the agriculture, healthcare, energy, and food processing industries, as well as some in manufacturing. Since its inception, the company has signed leases worth USD25 million over the past two years, in support of the private sector and the country’s development while supporting key sectors, including healthcare, with a variety of crucial and high-quality diagnostic medical equipment, in combination with a full-service warranty including spare parts and maintenance.
“Today’s transfer of this state-of-the-art ophthalmic microscope is realistic proof of the solutions our firm offers to the private sector,” said Mr. Degol Gossaye, CEO of Ethio Lease, during the transfer ceremony.
“Working with Ethio Lease helped us boost our productivity and enabled us to be more flexible and creative with our resources,” stated Dr. Melaku Megistu , General Manager of WGGA Medical Services PLC. The advantages of this type of collaboration, particularly in our context, are enormous, and it should be encouraged and supported. “We are thankful for our partnership.”
