Photo of the Week:
This photo was taken at the El Joshua Super Agent Office in Abuja, Nigeria in February 2013. El Joshua use to support Mobile Money powered by MTN but are now supporting various bank and third-party mobile money operator platforms as a super agent able to train and manage multiple agents. Over the past year, they have trained almost 500 mobile money agents across Northern and Central Nigeria. To ensure that their trainers all have mobile phones ready for training events, this office maintains an ample supply of basic Nokia phones. With the rising number of mobile money operators in Nigeria and the need to quickly roll out mobile money agents, super agents like El Joshua will soon be in heavy demand.
