How is it being a boda rider?
Ni job poa sana na ikona pesa nzuri

Kama uko karibu na town minimum ni 2000 daily na that is on a weekday
How did you get to know of Nikodigi Bodacare?
Niliambiliwa na rafiki yangu hapo muthurwa because I really needed insurance and I liked how Bodacare operates nikakuwa mteja regular
Why Nikodigi BodaCare?
First of all Friendliness hawa watu walikuwa very inviting and friendly furthermore vilewanasgughulikia watu waboda na kuspecialize na needs zao tu ilinibamba. I mean Insurance na loan on ground consultation na free training I was impressed.
Kwani how do other Insurance companies handle boda riders?
Kusema ukweli not as well laid out kama Bodacare unajua wao wamefocus on everything mtu wa boda anahitaji they make sure wakopale ndaniiii kabisa.
What would be your most memorable moment in the boda industry?
Waaaah heeeh… So kuna hii siku job ilikuwa poa na nilikuwa nimemake doh fit hata kuliko kawaida. So mimi nimetoka job nikapark bike kwa plot na nikaingia home, hata sikukaa sana kutoka after dakika kama mbao hivi nakuta bike yangu imeibiwa.
Niliboeka after a good days work masaaibu tena, so that time nilikuwa nimechukuwa insurance na Nikodigi Bodacare. Nikawa pigia nikaongea na Faith akanishow nisijali saana, nilete documents kadha kwa ofisi and after one and a half months nilikuwa na bike ingine.
Hiyosiku siwezi sahau.
What are your future aspirations?
Naona nikigo far especially saa hii vile naona industry ya Boda ikigrow. Mtu akitaka kufikisha parcel unaona boda pale ni faster kwanza sasa vile technologia imekuja kwa wingi na ona ata mimi nikiwa na boda kama tano hivi karibuni, si Bodacare watanipee bike on loan nizilipe zote.
