Opinions amongst Stakeholders are unanimous that with theselatest offers, Smile has lived up to its billing as a company that cares and is very desirous to alwaysdelight its customers, including SMEs. A Development Economist, Yusuf Anibaba, observed that the discounts on offer by Smile will go a long way to help assistmanySMEs that have been buffeted by the pangs of theCovid-19 pandemic. Similarly, Anayo Okeke, an entrepreneur based in Ikeja Lagos noted that these discounts couldn’t have come at a better time. To him “Smile seems to know what SMEs are going through duringthis period; that there is a downturn in our business, is stating the obvious. However, it is heart-warming that Smile’s 100% discount offers can allow Small and Medium Enterprises to be smiling too”. This cross-section of positive opinion is validated by the fact that only Smile currently offers attractively priced andsuperior Routers and SMiFis in the Nigerian market.
