Car-sharing in Kenya

Kenyan startup Komboa has launched a peer-to-peer (P2P) car-sharing platform, which allows users to rent private vehicles. Komboa was launched on desktop in June and will soon have its own app, was built to challenge the traditional model of owning a car, by allowing users to rent for the long-term. Bootstrapped so far, Komboa has seen relatively slow uptake with around 150 registered users. Operating only in Nairobi, the startup plans on expanding to other major towns and cities in Kenya once it hits a threshold of 1,000 users on the platform. Komboa operates on a commission basis, taking 20% on every transaction that takes place on its platform.
