(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroonian startup Adwa recently launched Mboa Taxi, an app that allows users to hail high-class cabs. Depending on the type of cars the user wants, fees can range between XAF2,500 and XAF10,000 per ride.
The rides can be paid via Adwa Pay, a digital payment platform that aggregates almost all the available payment solutions used in Cameroon (Paypal included).
According to the promoters, Mboa Taxi users can avoid the insecurity in the transport sector. For instance, one of Adwa’s executives reveals, “once, one of our clients forgot her iPad in our car and we sent it back to her. She was surprised to see the driver who came to give it back to her.”
For users’ safety, Mboa Taxi has a network constituted of almost all the drivers at every major hotel. These professionals are ID’d and comply with a code of conduct.
