A new ride-sharing app, Dryft, introduced in Takoradi has pledged to invest 1 percent of its commission in community development projects.
The Takoradi Area Manager of Dryft, Joana Koomson, told Citi News at the launch of Dryft it gives the rider much value due to its industry-lowest 12 percent commission.
“With our 1 percent share of the commission, we plan to go to the community to help the schools and other amenities they might need for education and especially the market women. Dryft is here to help the drivers and also the passengers,” she said.
A Management Member of Dryft, Samuel Kojo Brace, speaking to Citi News said Dryft Takoradi is a homegrown player which does not only offer riders value but will also allow customers to create wealth for themselves.
“One other thing we are bringing on board is when you download the Dryft app today onto your phone and you share it with someone to also download, it goes with your identity. So with that your referral, at the end of the month, if you are able to help about 60 people to download and use the app there is something that accrues to you.”
“If we get a complaint of disrespect from passengers, we won’t hesitate taking you off our app because we want our passenger to feel at ease because he or she is riding on the Dryft app. So every passenger should anticipate that when you join the Dryft app, you’re treated as the Queen or as the King that you’re expected to be treated, that’s what we are bringing to the market.”
The Western Regional Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah who launched the Dryft ride-sharing app commended the team for helping to create more employment in Sekondi-Takoradi as well as promoting local entrepreneurship.
