Meet The Nigerian I.T Entrepreneur Who Started With Nothing But Now Has 3,000 Customers


Her name is Rosemary Njoku. Mark just met Rosemary at the Facebook Express Wi-Fi stand she runs in Lagos.

Express Wi-Fi empowers entrepreneurs to build a business by providing their community with access to the internet. Facebook designed the technology, and local internet providers add the connectivity. Express Wi-Fi is part of our initiative.

“Rosemary already had a business before she also started selling Express Wi-Fi as well, but she told me she now has 3,000 customers and makes much more money from Express Wi-Fi. She’s a great example of how local entrepreneurs spread internet access around the world”.
