Bernard Kiwia: Tanzania's bicycle mechanic turned inventor

It is often said that African entrepreneurs are solution seekers and none more so than Bernard Kiwia.

Now a social entrepreneur, he has created products such as solar water heaters and drip irrigation kits. Africa Business Report visited him in Arusha, Tanzania, to talk about his innovative designs.
