So, she created an organization to transform bicycles into a tool for income generation to empower the world’s 550 million small farmers.

To do this, she has engineered attachments for bicycles such as maize shellers, grinders and phone chargers. The designs are simple, affordable, and driven by pedal-power. With their adapter, the bicycle retains all functionality for transport, while gaining value as a tool for farmers.
