Many Africans don’t have enough money to buy a bicycle in one go, but do have a vision on how they can use a bicycle to improve their livelihood. These people (and especially women are encouraged to participate) can apply for a bicycle on credit via one of our partner organisations. For farmers, traders, bicycle taxis, waste collectors with bicycles, water vendors, etc, the bicycle is a tool to cycle out of poverty and improve their well being. We support small entrepreneurs who are using bicycles to make a living, and bicycle workshops where bicycles are sold, repaired and modified in our Bike4Work programme.
