NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- A businesswoman in Kenya has opened a condom delivery service because she thinks people are too shy to buy them in person in stores.

Faith Ndiwa said the condoms, which sell three for $3.50, are delivered by motorbike in the capital Nairobi to help avoid the city's notorious traffic jams. She said about 4,000 clients, both men and women, have used the service, which employs 15 people, the BBC reported Saturday.

Two limousines decorated with red flowers made special deliveries to couples on Valentine's Day.

Free condoms are supposed to be available in public restrooms and at health clinics and hospitals but supplies often run out, the BBC said.
