Well; Let me expain…

Remember, before now; you have to buy a recharge card before you can recharge your phone. By then, recharge card printing and selling business was the hottest.

Now, everything has changed!

VTU allows phone users to recharge (top-up) their phones using simple USSD codes, apps, or websites.

Phone users can buy recharge cards, data, and subscription services with just a snap!

When you become VTU agent, you can sell recharge cards, data bundles, subscription services and enjoy huge profits.
