Businesswoman Sarah Kabu has narrated how she bought her first car and the requirements for car ownership.
The mother of two claimed in a video posted to her TikTok channel that she was making KSh 30,000 per month when she purchased her first car.
She revealed that her first automobile was a Toyota Vitz and that she used to set aside money each month in order to have enough to buy her own vehicle.
“It was not easy to achieve it. Yaani, I felt like I had owned the world when I owned that Vitz. Because it was a dream come true. I saved KSh 100,000. I was saving KSh 10,000 every month and I was earning KSh 30,000. Unafinya budget mpaka unasave 10k. At the end of the year, I had KSh 120,000,” she said.
She then decided to save the same amount for another year, and had KSh 240,000 by the end of the second year.
“Then Vitz ikatokea. I was among the first ten Kenyans to own a Vitz,” she said.
Her followers were inspired by her story of how she bought her first car. Some also noted how much she has changed her fashion and commended her new stylist.
