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 Zubaru 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.

In 2013, Comfort officially turned her knack into a business.

Community Impact: Comfort has been able to train others and some young friends in the same business, and has been able to help with the education of two of her siblings.

Comfort is a very driven young lady and her great and distinctive touch has given her several business referrals from her old clients.
