Mozambikes is improving the lives of rural Mozambicans one bike at a time. The Maputo-based social venture makes affordable bicycles for rural communities, where no other form of transport is available.
The startup generates income by selling advertising space, letting companies pay to brand the bikes with their logo. Mozambikes then sells the bicycles at considerably low prices, making them affordable to low income earners.
The company also allows organisations to buy, brand, and distribute the bikes to their employees, customers, or communities as a form of corporate social responsibility. Additionally, Mozambikes runs a charity and allows visitors to its web site to donate a bike to those in need.
Mozambikes is one of the ten African startups to watch.
