The BBC reported an unusual Valentine’s Day story about AIDS prevention. On Friday, two limousines and motorbikes made special deliveries throughout Nairobi. So what was the unique product that got delivered by limo? Instead of the usual pizza and flowers, this business delivers condoms.
Faith Ndiwa, a Kenyan businesswoman officially launched her condom delivery company on Valentine’s Day. She tells the BBC News that she has at least 4,000 customers, and developed her client base before her official Friday launch.
Ndiwa told the BBC News that she came up with the idea after losing friends to Aids. She said most of them didn’t buy condoms because they were too embarrassed. As expected, most of her customers use her service on the weekend. She has 15 employees and charges $3.50 for a three-pack of condoms, which also includes delivery across Nairobi. The article states that sex is still a taboo subject and people don’t buy condoms publicly because they don’t want to be known as promiscuous.
