According to Gtel this credit plan is available to anyone formally employed or with consistent income as well as anyone who had bought a Gtel phone from the 1st of October. Gtel is sticking with its strategy for mass adoption by targeting civil servants, armed forces and workers from mines and manufacturing companies with this promotion.
