The worst case is when you have customers who deposit as little as Ksh49, you’ll earn nothing.
For one to earn more money as an agent, you must have your shop strategically positioned where human traffic is high. You should also target average depositing clients. The best clients are those who deposit or withdraw Ksh2,000 to Ksh10,000
