After completing his accounting diploma and facing the harsh reality of unemployment, Jones Nyaberi decided to return to his roots in Kisii. Determined to make a living, he ventured into cabbage farming, scraping together at savings of Sh. 60,000.

It was this seed money that set the wheels of his entrepreneurial journey in motion.

With a vision for a better future, Nyaberi used his savings to purchase a secondhand motorcycle from a friend, marking the beginning of his career as a boda boda rider.

Little did he know that this decision would lead to a transformative chapter in his life.

As he traversed the bustling streets, Nyaberi encountered a client who would change the course of his life.

The customer, an employee of a SACCO (Savings and Credit Cooperative Organization), saw potential in Nyaberi and encouraged him to start saving. This simple piece of advice planted the seed for a future of financial stability.

With newfound determination, Nyaberi embarked on a journey of savings, setting aside a portion of his earnings with each ride. He started small, focusing on building a foundation for his own house.

However, his priorities shifted when he realized that his parents were living in a dilapidated mud-walled house. Nyaberi decided to put his dream on hold temporarily and redirected his efforts towards constructing a better home for his parents.

Completing his parents’ house became a labor of love for Nyaberi. The sacrifices he made and the effort he put into ensuring their comfort reflected his deep-seated commitment to family. Only after completing this noble endeavor did he resume the construction of his own house.

Three years later, Nyaberi stands proudly in front of his three-bedroomed house.

“It is a three-bedroomed house with a store, kitchen and living room. It has so far cost me Sh. 1.5 million,”

Nyaberi attributes his success to the combination of hard work, discipline, and the financial knowledge he gained during his accounting diploma.

In addition to his personal achievements, Nyaberi has become a trusted figure in his community.

“I have realized in this business, you just have to be trustworthy to your clients and your business flourishes. Some trust me even to deliver huge sums of money and I have never failed than,” he says.
