Elijah Kiambati Kiragu is a 32-year-old motorcycle taxi (Boda Boda) rider from Nairobi, Kenya. His main concern has always been providing for his family, so he has been looking for opportunities. This has been difficult because of challenging times and high unemployment in the country. However, he found a way to earn by becoming a Boda Boda rider five years ago.
Like most riders, he drove an expensive rental motorcycle, knowing he would never own it. Yet Elijah worked hard, saved money, and finally fulfilled his dream of buying a motorcycle on his own. Unfortunately, it turned out this used motorcycle was in a bad technical condition, and due to high fuel consumption, it was unprofitable to use it for work. Elijah did not give up — he found a way to buy a new Boda Boda and make his business profitable. He did it by taking a loan from MOGO Kenya. It proved to be an easy, fast, and convenient process – monthly loan payment is even lower than riders usually pay for motorcycle rent. As a result, he could finally make some savings.
