International ride-hailing service Yango in partnership with Leasafric Ghana Plc, a leading leasing and logistics company, have successfully added a second batch of vehicles to complete the first phase of 100 fleet car s for Yango partners in Ghana. These vehicles were handed over to the partners at a special handover ceremony in Accra.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony, Country Manager of Yango Ghana, Mr. Tom Ofonime said “As an IT company, we are committed to providing tech solutions for our fleet partners to ensure that they smoothly manage and run their operations. We are super excited to join the team at Leasafric to provide a unit economic driven acquisition plan for our fleet partners’’.
Through the partnership, Leasafric procures and makes available to Yango’s partners vehicles which will operate on Yango’s platform. This partnership ties into Yango’s client acquisition and expansion strategy, which involves fleet acquisition for its Ghanaian partners, aimed at ensuring a comfortable and safe travel experience for its customers.
Head of Business Development at Leasafric PLC, Nii Noi Narh also added “We are very happy to see this dream become reality as we build together a sustainable ride-hailing community in Ghana through vehicle financing for Yango’s partners. Our vision is to empower these partners to scale up, create jobs and essentially an improved life for themselves and their families.”
This handover marks a major leap forward in Yango and Leasafric’s vision of empowering young Ghanaian entrepreneurs to acquire vehicles for their ride-hailing business. There are plans to increase the number of vehicles by the end of the year.
