Before he launched the moving company, he was working as a trade market support with a cigarette manufacturing company in Kitale.

He had quit the job because it was infrequent and unpredictable.

"I quit the job because it was unreliable, and I mediately started job hunting. I applied for many jobs but I wasn't lucky," he said.

Ouma developed the idea of starting a moving company after a conversation with a friend who offers home cleaning services and he never looked back.

Uncles who promised jobs became distant

He recounted how his uncles who had promised him good jobs while he was still in school, vanished at the time of need.
