City officials randomly drew 500 recipients for Rendo por App - or Income by App - kits. Each kit included a bicycle, a helmet, and a smartphone with a data plan. Recipients including couriers, home-based businesses, and contractors use free equipment to earn income in a struggling economy. The Income by App initiative is part of a citywide poverty reduction program that includes entrepreneurship courses and a reimbursement program for job-related travel.
