ADDIS ABABA – Ethio Lease, a private equipment leasing firm in Ethiopia, on Saturday transferred high-tech Ophthalmic microscopes to WGGA Eye Center following the successful completion of a leasing agreement.
The transfer of the Ophthalmic Microscopes worth more than 5 million Birr is part of multiple leasing agreements signed by Ethio Lease with medical and diagnostic centers throughout the country.
