MTN VillagePhone

Extending telecommunications access to rural villages across Uganda

In partnership with Uganda's leading microfinance institutions, VillagePhone creates opportunities for poor rural individuals to become VillagePhone Operators. These VillagePhone businesses can be established in areas where electricity is unavailable and in areas where the MTN network can only be accessed with a booster antenna.
Motivation
Provide the rural communities of Uganda with affordable and accessible communications services to enable them to break the cycle of poverty.
Poverty reduction through sustainable business practices.

Telecommunications access provides economic impact for the entire village; the technology also serves to link regional entrepreneurs with each other and their clients, bringing more business to small enterprises.
