How does Social Income work?

Contributors pay 1% of their monthly paycheck, which is added to the social income fund and directly deposited to a recipient’s mobile phone. 

The amount is determined by the average monthly salary where recipients live. For Social Income to be effective, it should at least 30% of an average local salary.

In Sierra Leone, for example, a monthly salary is typically about $60, so recipients in this case would be given $20 each per month. If a contributor’s salary were $6,000 per month, their 1% donation of $60 would then be split into three universal basic incomes of $20 each.

Recipients would be paid without conditions, and would be guaranteed to receive payments every month for three years.
