Inspiration: Woman Narrates Why She Decided To Leave Market Business And Buy A Matatu

A woman in Kajiado has opened up to Tuko abut why she decided to purchase a matatu and work on her own with no employees. Alice Mosonik could be an inspiration to many women as she also opened up about abandoning her market business and became a tout.


Tuko reports that Alice beckons passengers at a matatu stage in Kajiado town; they out of excitement and curiosity board the 14-seater car. She said she was a member of several chamas where she obtained loans from them totaling Sh. 300,000, she then applied for a loan from Family Bank.

Further reports said that Alice was encouraged by her late friend, Joyce Kamau who was a matatu driver; while working in the market, she opted to try after the friend told her the matatu business was profitable.

Alice said she opted to work alone in her matatu after the people she employed conned her of the daily proceeds. She said that her husband is the biggest motivator as he has to wake up as early as 3 am to ensure she doesn't get late to work.

However, her biggest challenge is spending time with family members as she goes to work when they haven't woken up and returns when they are asleep. But she is grateful the industry has enabled her to fend for the family. She thanks passengers for encouraging her despite others who say the job is on the domestic front.
