She came through as the winner of The 2022 Edition of PMUC Award Initiative. As winner of the 2022 edition, Ndono Ngono, bagged home the sum of 10 million FCFA for her outstanding performances.
Besides Ndono, who took home the highest sum for the 2023 event, four other outstanding agents also garnered huge sums of money as winners.

The 2023 Back To School Challenge is the second edition of an initiative launched by PMUC to recognise its excelling sales persons and agents nationwide.
The inaugural edition of the campaign, generally known as the PMUC Champions League, was held last year with the overall winner bagging home the sum of 10 million FCFA.
The 2023 edition was organised during a period of one month from August 1 to August 30 this year.
According to PMUC, the overall winner's prize, which involved a financial package, was handed out to the agent who made the highest sales during the one-month span under review.
All 1,020 PMUC sale persons and agents entered the 2023 competition with over 560 of them recognised in return. The competition is supervised by PMUC General Manager, Paul Louis Tasso.
Compensating hard work
According to the management of the institution, the PMUC Champions League, named Back To School Challenge for the 2023 event, is organised to promote the spirit of hard work and to equally recognise those who have been able to distinguish themselves by working hard.
Beyond the recognition, the initiative is also aimed at enabling PMUC agents and sales persons to raise additional funds besides the commissions they make from their various commercial activities at the company.
This, the PMUC says, is the reason the 2023 edition was officially named Back To School Challenge, which coincides with the back-to-school period when financial needs generally multiply.
Similar scheme for football betting agents
Besides the competition organised for sales persons and agents at PMUC, the company equally organised a similar initiative for those working under its football betting company, Bet237.
The competition equally named Back To School Challenge had the sum of 1.5million FCFA dished out to the various winners.
The prizes ranged from 30,000 FCFA to 300,000 FCFA for the lowest and highest earners respectively.
The overall winner received the sum of 300,000 FCFA, while the runner-up got 200,000 FCFA.
Beneficiaries express gratitude, pledge more hard work
In separate reactions, the winners of the 2023 PMUC Back To School Challenge initiative expressed gratitude to the company for its thoughtfulness and kindness towards them.
They also promised to continue working hard in future to ensure they do not only continue getting the recognition, but playing a key role in maintaining PMUC as the leading betting company in the country and beyond.
Ndono Ngono Momithilde, the overall winner in the 15 million FCFA-prize main category, particularly thanked the company for her distinction.
