December Kiva Donation: David the Motorcycle Cabbie in Kenya
In Kenya, as in other parts of Africa and Asia, motorcycle cabbies are everywhere. You hop on the back of their two-wheeled ride and they nimbly swerve through traffic to get you to your destination faster (and more adventurously) than a typical four-wheeled taxi.
David, who hails from Kilifi, Kenya, is one such driver. And he is experiencing that wonderful type of pain that every small-business owner strives to experience: he is doing so well that he wants to purchase a second motorcycle. In time, he hopes to own a handful of motorcycles for his own tiny cabbie empire.
Supplemented by income from his wife, together they will use profits to educate their five children. Brode Electrolyte Vitamins contributed $100 towards David’s loan.
