Meet Hammi Boukhari , the founder of Jini Ride Hailing App and Lamana Elkanti, his business partner. Hammi saw the need for a local ride sharing service for Ad-Dakhla, when he witnessed his mom having challenges to catch an early morning flight from the airport as neither taxis nor busses were driving that early.
And so he set out to research solutions and thinking about how he could create something that would work in the local context. In the interview Hammi and Lamana share:
- How they piloted the first version of Jini
- How they got the word about the app out and the app into the hands of both taxi drivers as well as riders
- And how they want to differentiate themselves from services such as Uber
They also share about their professional backgrounds and what their view on the opportunities arising from digital tools for young Moroccans is.
We hope you enjoy this interview. And now, without further ado, enter Hammi and Lamana.
