About Motorbank Kenya:

Motorbank Kenya is a microfinance institution that helps motorcycle drivers in Kenya purchase their own bikes, enabling them to make more money and do good in their communities. It is the only organization that specializes in motorcycle loan plans that enable borrowers to make daily, weekly or monthly installment with a reasonable or no deposit option. In addition, the company offers training in entrepreneurship, safe driving, first aid and more.

Aiming to ease transportation challenges faced by health workers in Kenya, Motorbank has developed a loan product called BodAfya, offered to both Community Health Workers (CHWs) and motorcycle taxi drivers that commit to expanding community health outreach in remote areas where hospitals are not accessible due to poor infrastructure and long distances. Kiva lenders’ funds are used to decrease interest rates on this loan product and expand the program’s outreach in more rural communities.

Motorbank joined Kiva through our Experimental Partnership Program, and has therefore received a lighter level of due diligence. Accordingly, loans associated with this partner carry a higher level of risk than typical Kiva loans.
