With assistance from a bolt driver, Gertrude was able to register as a driver.

According to Gertrude, she forgot to start the trip for her first ride but the passenger was generous enough to pay her fare.

Gertrude has been a driver for eight weeks now and she works from 8 am to 5 pm from Mondays to Fridays.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the video of a young lady from Imo State in Nigeria, riding a keke (tricycle) for commercial purposes has got many people talking online.
In a short clip that was shared by @Instablo9ja on Instagram, the single lady said that she studied theology at the University of Calabar.
When asked why she decided to go into that business route, the lady revealed that the job is far better than the teaching job she was into.
The business lady stated that she was a teacher in private schools before the switch. The keke driver added she got tired of the pittance that came in as salary.
