The two firms say driver-partners will be empowered with the skills to manage their finances in order to grow their income and save for the future. Drivers will receive an invitation via email to reserve their seat.
The Old Mutual On the Money workshops will be free to Uber driver-partners in Kenya, Nigeria and Ghana. By attending, they’ll learn to understand basic money principles, develop healthy savings habits and plan a path to financial well-being. The workshops were previously run in partnership with Uber in South Africa with great results and positive feedback from the driver-partners who attended.
According to Alon Lits, General Manager for Uber Sub-Saharan Africa, “Uber is a passionate champion of innovation, both in the transport sector and in the development of entrepreneurs. With this partnership we can foster the skills of emerging entrepreneurs, empower driver-partners using our app to grow their small business, support their families and begin saving.”
