Universal Talk Time(UTT)
Published on June 4, 2014 um 15:05
Summary of your idea
UTT aims to reach to the zambian masses that do not get air time on time or have stock outs in the villages of zambia. we have taken a survey that showed us that villagers pay more for talk time eg a K5 scratch card costs K6, this is reaping off a poor villager and we want to eliminate this business philosophy.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
we have projected that this project will enhance the local vendors by empowering them and l expect to employ 300 vendors if this projetc come to commercialisation. we are working on the same 10% commission plus basis from the operators and with our projected workforce we anticipate to sale more scratch cards per month and meet other targets to earn quarterly commissions from airtel, MTN &Zamtel.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
my business model is very simple since the universal scratch has a VPN license from ZICTA and the telecom providers in zambia, hence we will be printing scratch cards that you can use to top up any SIM card in zambia. we have some finances from the National technology business centre and ACE Global. we have contracts with MTN,Zamtel to start our project this june.
l m a 29 yeas innovative young man, born and raised in Zambia. l have studied accountancy and banking. coming up with innovative ideas is my daily thing which l think l can use to serve a lot of people from basic sufferings in zambia.
