As we are growing more and more Bodaboda drivers in Tanzania become owners and their income is doubled compared to what they received before. Improvement of their Financial status also changed their way of life Thanks to Pushsky.
The average motorcycle taxi driver earns $95 per week, of which approximately 43% is spent on fuel and maintenance, and 33% on renting the bike from the owner/landlord. This leaves a take-home of just $22 to support a family. When a driver joins Push sky, they only pay the same amount paid to landlords per week (about $31) but get to own the motorcycle in 12 months or less. Ownership therefore doubles take-home profits to $53--a massive step up for the driver and his household. Additionally, the paid off motorcycle is usually still worth at least $765, so many drivers choose to sell it and invest the cash in buying land or a side business. Many then return to Push sky for another bike because they know they can afford our payments.
