Mr. Tejan has been riding his bike every day since he got it a few years ago at a VBP program in Sierra Leone. When we ran into him recently, he told us, “When I did not have a bike, I walked 22 miles every day from Rogbare Junction to Lunsar for my door to door shoe business. I treat my bike with great care, servicing it every two weeks, because it is really important to me.” Mr. Tejan told us the bike has increased his income. “The bicycle makes it easy for me; before I put bunches of shoes on my head and walked, but now I carry the shoes on my bike, and I am much happier. “
Ride on, Mr. Tejan!
