KATHMANDU: Ncell has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with UKaid funded RAP3 CONNECT to offer over 400 women the opportunity to become retailers of Ncell recharge cards.
The MoU will benefit 400 women micro-entrepreneurs associated with RAP3 CONNECT by adding Ncell recharge cards in their sales basket, enabling them to function as retailers of the company, as per a statement issued by the firm.
Ncell hopes this will support the women to secure sustainable incomes, and also enable some of them to build their business to sell e-charge and SIM cards in the future.
With the MoU, Ncell joins an existing partnership between RAP3 CONNECT, Unilever Nepal, Bottlers Nepal and Prabhu Bank that is working to enable women in remote areas of Provinces 6 and 7 to establish small businesses.
