Mobility is a challenge in Africa. A large number of drivers will never own their taxis, most are untrained and unlicensed, and many operate with no insurance.

SOLUTION

MAX (Metro Africa Express) is making moto-taxis safe, affordable and accessible for everyone. With Mastercard as their payments and scaling partner, MAX is providing their riders with easier ways to pay, and their drivers with a mobile wallet to receive payments, access their earnings and manage the leasing of their vehicles, setting them on the path to connecting with the formal financial system
