    Getting finances in order might not always be a business owner’s favorite tasks, but it’s an important one that we wanted to help tackle. So today, we started by re-visiting the group we saw yesterday, Safe Boda!

    Safe Boda’s drivers are trained in safer road skills and gender-based violence prevention. Despite running a successful business that is faring well, keeping track of the books can be challenging. We learned that they didn’t have the tools necessary for more successful accounting, especially when it came to making plans for the future, which they definitely want to do.

    So, in addition to giving them helmets, we decided to give them some safety boxes to keep track of their expenses and other finances.

    Augustin, one of the men we helped, noted that “the safety box reminds us that we need to set up a meeting with the livelihood officer to learn more about working as a group and how we can improve our savings culture and record keeping. We appreciate the initiative and it has helped us increase our capacity and achieve our desired goal.”
