- The story of partner before joining Yango
Meet Gilbert Banda an entrepreneur in the transport sector and CEO of Loyale Transportation Limited and one of Yango’s official partners. Before becoming a Yango Partner, the company ran several taxis and faced challenges in operating the business such as a lack of a good and consistent customer base, as well as lack of capital to expand as an SME.
When Yango entered the market, Mr Banda did not think twice about jumping on the opportunity of becoming a partner. The partnership offered great new prospects and exciting adventures. such as profits, benefits, and access to a ready customer base.
“This to me is a great partnership for local empowerment, especially for an SME like Loyale Transportation Limited where our focus is on expansion, good quality service delivery within the sector and the empowerment of a great many drivers. An added advantage is that Yango has brought competition in the sector which will greatly improve the service delivery within the sector.”- Mr Banda
- Success story
Benefits of joining Yango. challenges and advantages. Current results and success. Working places for drivers. Monthly turnover.
There are many benefits of partnering with Yango. Firstly, we are now managing more than 1,000 cars and this is sharpening both our management and leadership skills. The challenges that come along with this type of growth are simply an opportunity to improve and grow.
We have heard testimonials from many of our drivers on how using the Yango has drastically changed their financial positions in less than 2 months. Starting from failure to pay off loans or credit to being debt free and even acquiring assets like land. Soon many of our drivers will own their own taxis and become their own bosses which is a big plus for us because therefore we wake up early in the morning – to see our people progress.
- Plans to further expand
Loyale Transportation Limited is an SME run by a young, fresh, and youthful team with great millennial ideas. Where we previously lacked capital to realize these ideas, the Yango Partnership has made this possible. Our goal is to expand and continue to grow through a major shift in technological advancements.
Lastly, our expectations and aspirations are to see to it that the Zambian transportation sector continues to grow and develop.
We encourage Yango to invest more in marketing and advertisements, to increase the customer base, which then will directly improve local partner expansion and inevitably improve the lives of thousands of drivers.

Transport and Logistics Minister Hon. Frank Tayali gives Yango A Nod
On 31st of July 2022, a Yango delegation led by Ms Kabanda Chewe, the Country Manager for Zambia and Anton Zykov, Yango Head of international government relations projects, was granted an audience with the Minister of Transport and Logistics Hon. Frank Tayali accompanied by Acting Director Planning and Monitoring Mrs. Irene Tembo and Public Relations Officer for the Ministry Mr. Ndubi Mvula. During the courtesy call current changes in legislation and basic topics concerning ride hailing industry regulation were discussed.
The Yango delegation made a comprehensive presentation of its business model in Zambia. Ms Chewe offered to share best practices from across 20 Yango geographies in the field of urban transport. Yango underlined that affordability and digitalisation are very important for sustainable development of modern transport means such as online taxis.
Minister of Transport and Logistics Hon. Frank Tayali noted: “Zambians are enjoying the convenience of Yango, the fact that it provides better service. We see that its presence on the market benefits the creation of new job opportunities with local transport operators which partner with Yango. It gives access to an unprecedented level of earnings for young people. The new regulation will not limit these opportunities”.
Yango hopes that the new statutory instrument will give online taxis an affordable, simple, and fully digital way to continue operating but also allow the government to get its stipend from the rapidly expanding ride-hail sector.
Discussing the business model of Yango, Ms Chewe emphasized a fundamental difference between electronic platforms such as Yango and transport operators: “Yango is an electronic platform, a smart solution for connecting local Zambian transport operators and their clients. We work only with local independent partners – Zambian transport providers who aggregate drivers or have their own fleet.”
Another important topic raised during the meeting was price regulation. Ms Chewe noted: “There is a big change that happens on the market with Yango, the international business, launch. Due to fare competition that benefits all parties, for the first time in the history of the country, taxi rides become more accessible to everyone, which increases mobility and promotes economic growth. For further development and growth of the local market the government should not regulate prices artificially.”
Yango, an international informational service for ordering rides online was launched in Zambia in 2022 on March 29. Today it successfully operates in Lusaka helping facilitate a digital platform for local partners that provide affordable transportation for thousands of passengers every day. Yango has been operating mobility and delivery businesses in 20 countries across Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa since 2011.
