Every month, thousands of Kenyans struggle to make ends meet. With electricity, water, food and petrol costs soaring, people are looking for ways to make extra money to make life a little easier. Kerb is one of these new ways.\u00a0 So how does it work? It\u2019s a bit like \u2018Airbnb for\u00a0Parking\u2019: homeowners can rent out their spare spaces to make extra\u00a0cash \u2013 and drivers can use the app to park more easily and more cheaply. Kerb changes the conventional view about where people can park their cars, motorbikes, boats and even helicopters! Kerb\u2019s technology unlocks empty spaces across the world\u2019s busiest cities, helping individuals, businesses and governments save time and money. Think about the place you live in. Every time you get into your car or onto your motorbike to go to work, you are freeing up a parking space which could potentially be used by someone else. And when you arrive at your destination and start looking for parking, you could just as easily park in a private parking space belonging to an individual, a small business or store, or even a hotel or church. Kerb leaser, Nancy Ouma says, \u201cI have found KERB to be an awesome way to make use of my car space when I\u2019m not parking my car there! The app is user-friendly and makes the whole process super-easy. The staff at KERB have great communication, too! There\u2019s no downside to using KERB and I recommend it to all of my friends!\u201d Kerb also offers a car park management solution which lets churches and schools use their car park to fundraise, allows universities and shopping malls to better manage their parking, and enables businesses to put their car parking spaces to work and generate extra cash. Residential committees even use Kerb to monitor visitor parking spaces and manage the allocation of parking spaces in apartment buildings. Kerb Co-founder, Rob Brown says, \u201cGovernments love Kerb because it reduces congestion and environmental impact by getting cars off roads, makes use of existing infrastructure \u2013 and means more money for locals to spend in the economy.\u201d Kerb parking spaces start at KES 300 a day, depending on where they are located. Those who list their parking space with Kerb use the extra cash on anything from house deposits to holidays, or their kids\u2019 school or university fees. The app isn\u2019t just for parking cars either \u2013 Kerb is also for renting and leasing spaces for motorbikes, boats, trucks \u2013 even helicopters\u2026 Kerb launched in October 2016 and is live across the world in 19 languages and localized in 300 cities. \u201cWe\u2019re really excited about the benefits that Kerb is going to have for users\u201d, says Co-founder Rob Brown. \u201cThe app allows you to list an entire car park up in minutes, and each individual bay can be customised by availability, price and vehicle type.\u201d Kerb is free to download on iOS and Android \u2013 just search by \u2018Kerb\u2019 in the AppStore or Google Play. Then you are just a few clicks away from booking convenient and affordable parking \u2013 or making cash out of your unused parking space. If you don\u2019t want to install, Kerb is also available on the web (www.kerb.works). If you\u2019re envious of your neighbours paying off their mortgage earlier or going on great holidays because they list their home on Airbnb \u2013 this could be your easier, greener way to cash in on the sharing economy!
