This will heavily reduce the financial burden on these partners and drivers.

Users of the Yango app will also benefit from this collaboration, as they can now upgrade to a new TECNO device and pay for it in installments, providing a seamless and cost-effective approach to stay connected while enjoying the convenience of a ride-hailing service.
