Job Creation from 2015 Leads to New Jobs in 2016

Dear Amazing Leadership Initiatives Supporter,

I am thrilled to let you know that the businesses you sponsored in 2015 have now begun the process of community re-investment. Not only have 6 of the 16 businesses you sponsored to receive business and skills training in 2016 fully repaid back their loans to local investors but 2 of those businesses are now funding the creation of new businesses within their surrounding communities. 

This is an astonishing success that could not have been possible without your support. I am now honored to introduce Tukur and his mobile phone repair business. 


Business Type: Mobile Phones Repairs

Business Owner: Tukur 

Location: Wunti Market Bauchi

Business Production Capacity: 5-8 phones a day

Number of People Employed: 2

People Directly Benefiting from the Business: 5

Employees’ Children who are attending school: 1

Business Goals: To provide cost effective and efficient phone repair services for the members of the community and to train other young men in phone repairs, as well.

About The Business: Tukur began to learn how to repair phones just after his secondary school education while waiting to get admission into the university. He learned from a friend and has used his skill to repair numerous phones for many people who could not have afforded to repair their phones in other communities. Tukur gives members of his community special considerations. He has been in the Mobile Phone repairs for 2 years now and has been able to help members of his family and some young boys with the skill he has learned and the income he has made over time.

Community Impact:  Members of Tukur’s community have enjoyed subsidized prices for their phone repairs. Tukur has been able to contribute to the upkeep of his siblings and ease the burden off of his parents. 4 young boys have also learned how to repair mobile phones and have been able to give back to their families and communities because of Tukur’s business.

About The Owner: Tukur is a 23 year old young man who has always loved to be independent. When he completed his secondary school education, his parents could not afford to pay for his university education, but Tukur never allowed that weigh him down. He heard that a friend of his had begun repairing mobile phones and Turkur immediately joined him to learn. He became very good at it within 3 months.  Tukur has been repairing phones for about 2 years now and he has become a favourite in his community. He has also been able to save up enough money to finance his higher education and help his parents with some of his siblings’ education.
This business is possible through Hamza and Umar whose are now investing within their community to make new opportunities and advances possible and owe much of their success to your support. 
 
Once again Leadership Initiatives and everyone within our family and community would like to thank you for your support and would love have you involved with Leadership Initiatives if you ever want to help grow our programs, learn of ways you can participate or have new ideas on how to develop our programs please contact me at mbailly@lichange.org. Your hard work and intelligence is the greatest gift we could receive as we try and create a better world. 
 
Wishing you a wonderful Spring,
 
Marshall and the entire Leadership Initiatives Family
