After Graduating all Fatai Teleda wanted was a white-collar job. He had always dreamed of being all suited up, ties knotted perfectly with well laced and polished shoes, and a corner office in a leading company. That is the dream of the average Nigerian graduate and that graduate was Fatai Teleda. He had spent all these years reading and studying so he can achieve this aim and move on to the next phase of his life. At that point, Entrepreneurship did not mean much, he was all about getting his desk in a corner office with an expansive view of the city. Apparently, life does not always give you what you want.
In an economy where thousands of graduates’ hustle for minimal job opportunities in the widely preferred ‘white-collar’ sector, He brushed off the idea and decided to make a living for himself with the opportunities that abound around him. This turned out to be the best decision he ever made!
Fatai Teleda joined in on the mobile money wave in 2013, becoming one of the pioneering agency bankers in Nigeria. Over the years he has built a trusted and reliable clientele base who are faithful to him and his services. He has repaid their trust and continued business patronage by never relenting to offer the best service available to them.
Being the astute and determined man he has always been, Fatai Teleda is always on the lookout for better opportunities. He joined the Tingg network in November 2019 after stumbling on a twitter ad while surfing the microblogging platform. The move to Tingg saw his transactions boom and profit margin increased, ‘’I stayed on with tingg even when the POS charge was 1%, there is no reason not to use Tingg, I love the platform and I like the way Mr. Shina interacts with us’’ He has grown to become a major ambassador for the tingg brand and also successfully convinced six agents to port to the Tingg network in the last five months.
Mr. Fatai Teleda is evidence that you do not have to wait till you get your dream job before you attain financial stability, the always smiling neighborhood banker is a ray of hope and inspiration to anyone that comes in contact with him and we are happy to refer to him as one of our own.
