Owning a car comes with class and convenience in Kenya. According the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) and the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA), there has been an exponential growth in the number of cars on Kenyan road over the past five years.
This increase leads to an exponential growth for the sectors that are directly related and provide services to car owners. The logbook often always comes in handy when the car own is in need of credit.
