Ezekiel lives in Nairobi where he works as a driver. Doing deliveries and distributing marketing materials wasn’t making him enough money. “Then I heard about Uber and started planning and putting my documents together to join,” he says.
Ezekiel didn’t have a car, but he was introduced to an Uber partner and they negotiated a daily rate for him to pay to drive one of his cars. Ezekiel had maintenance challenges with the vehicle and would sometimes fill up the tank only to have the partner take that vehicle and give him a different one that needed refueling. He realised that having his own car would be the only way to become truly independent, yet without the necessary funds, his dream was out of reach.
This changed when Ezekiel came across JUMO Drive at an exhibition hosted by Uber. He downloaded the app and registered. He soon received a message notifying him that his application was being processed and he was able to pick up his car at a local dealership in a few weeks.
Now, Ezekiel is in charge of his own time, and takes care of his own car. He keeps track of his balance through the JUMO Drive app and looks forward to the day his car is fully paid off.
