Meet Rosemary Njoku. She Runs Facebook WiFi Express Stand In Lagos

Tuesday, August 30, 2016

Mark Zuckerberg this evening stopped by an Express WiFi stand in Lagos owned by Rosemary Njoku.

Facebook's WiFi express let's entrepreneurs like Rosemary set up a hot spot to help their community access apps and services built by local developers.

Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page:
This is Rosemary Njoku. I 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.

This week, we're launching a satellite into space to enable more entrepreneurs across Africa to sell Express Wi-Fi and more people to access reliable internet. That means more connectivity and more opportunity for entrepreneurs like Rosemary everywhere.
