Boda Bodas are a mainstay in Kenya. The motorcycle taxis can be seen everywhere and are often the best way to get around town. They are also a good way for entrepreneurs to start their own business because the bikes can be bought cheaply on credit and allow, mostly young men, to launch a career without needing an education or money.
