The motorcycle taxi operators From Nanyuki and its environ came together in 2011 and formed a chama from which members could borrow money to buy spare parts or bail themselves out in case they were arrested by the traffic police.
Gradually, the scope of the chama widened and the Nanyuki Boda Boda Sacco (Nabosa) was registered with the aim of helping members buy new motorcycles.
Then, two years ago, the idea of a housing project was born and soon some of the riders, who are still in their 20s, will own homes, something many of them say they had never dreamt possible. Some ended up in this occupation just to escape joblessness and had to get loans from relatives and financial institutions to buy boda bodas, today the sacco boasts of than 10,000 member.
