Globacom, a national telecoms firm, now allows its pre-paid customers to borrow airtime and data for friends, associates, and family members. “Borrow for Others” is the name of the service.
When friends and relatives run out of airtime or data, you may use the service to request airtime and data for them, which you must pay back on your next recharge within a certain time frame.
You can qualify for Glo Borrow for Others with any amount on your main account, but you must have been a committed and regular Glo customer for at least three months (90 days) and have a satisfactory use history in order to be eligible.
The company said the borrowed airtime could be used to call other networks or make international calls, while the borrowed data could be used to browse the internet, as the subscriber desires.
The borrower is expected to have a good credit history with the network, adding that he or she would pay back on the next recharge within a given period or by dialing *321*9*9#.
