His journey to becoming an aboboya rider started when George was in level 200 and his study-leave salary was cut.

With no solid financial support coming in, George applied for a scholarship from MTN Ghana Foundation and also gathered some funds to purchase an 'aboboya' to start a business.

MTN's funds helped George with school fees, accommodation and book purchases but he had to support himself with all other expenses from his okada business.
