The Lady Vendor

Numeris Media publishes a quarterly magazine (Bank & Entrepreneur Africa). The magazine is sold only by females from poor communities in Lagos-Nigeria. They are called 'Lady Vendors'.

The Lady Vendors earn a generous 50% of the magazine cover price (NGN1,000), which they save towards personal goals: food, health, shelter or or education (for themselves or their children). Their earnings ensure they discover how to be financially independent.

We train the Lady Vendors well. When they are not selling Bank & Entrepreneur Africa, they are sometimes hired by our partner organisations to do sales promotions - and so they earn even more money.
