Forbes Magazine Recognizes Bicycle Delivery Entrepreneurs

A South African business that specializes in delivering medications by bicycle was just named to Forbes Magazine's "30 under-30 Africa’s Best Boung Entrepreneurs List."

Medicine Delivery Bike

Sizwe Nzima is a 21-year-old South African who considered the overcrowding in local health care facilities and the abundance of able-bodied people looking for work.  Putting these two concepts together, he hired people to deliver medications to those in need, thereby eliminating the need for them to brave the chaotic health care facilities.  He charges a modest fee of ten Rand, equal in value to one US dollar, for the service.  His client list has grown from two people (his grandparents), to more than 250 people.

Bravo Mr. Nzima!
