 “The idea to buy Motorcycles is as a fact that operators who have been buying motorcycles on Loan have been doing so at a very high interest rate; Motorcycles with Kenyan number plates which could not allow them operate freely. We also borrowed a leaf from the Bukwo Taxi operators who purchased a Taxi using the fund”-Geoffrey Sande, Emyooga Desk Officer Kapchorwa.
