Nigeria’s central bank governor, Godwin Emefiele, on January 26 dismissed calls to devalue the naira in his monetary policy committee statement. Instead he chose to continue propping up the currency at 197-199 naira to the dollar and maintain foreign-exchange restrictions. As a result, the naira on the black market is hovering around a record low of 305, fuelling complaints from domestic and foreign businesses who can’t access dollars required for imports. / AFP / PIUS UTOMI EKPEI (Photo credit should read PIUS UTOMI EKPEI/AFP/Getty Images)

Feasibility Study on VTU (airtime)
Assuming you have like say hundred costumers that buy airtime from you on a daily basis, it means you will be making this:

MTN #100 is sold at #98 on the platform. That is to say that at every recharge of #100 MTN airtime you make #2( that is if you sell at #100 but if you sell at #110 then you will be making #12). While Glo is sold at #95 for #100 airtime. Airtel and 9mobile is sold at #97 and #96 respectively.

If hundred costumers buys #100 airtime you make #200 or #1200 at the rate of #110.

Glo airtime is sold at #95 on the platform which means you will be making #500 when you sell to hundred costumers at the rate of #100 or #1500 when you sell at #110
Same goes for Airtel and 9mobile.

Feasibility Study on Data Vending
Now let say you service twenty costumers on data daily then it gives:

MTN data
1 gigabyte of MTN data is sold at #500 while you can sell at #600.
If you service 20 costumers then you will be making @2,000 on a daily basis.

Glo data
1.6 gigabyte or 2 gigabyte is sold at #900 while you can sell at #1000.
If you service 20 costumers then you of making #1,000-#900=#100 multiplied by 20 costumers which gives #2,000 daily.
