John Sesay is a teacher with 15 years experience. When we approached him to ask about his bike, he educated us for good 30 minutes on its uses, how he’s maintaining it, and his reasons for riding. Before he had his bike, Mr. Sesay got up an hour earlier every morning to walked 3 km to work. When it rained he would spend Le 2,000 ($.50) on a motorbike ride. For a teacher who gets paid less than $100 a month, that’s an expensive ride. Now that he has a VBP bike, John has time in the mornings for the things he loves (like fresh coffee) and has even started teaching mathematics class in his spare time.
