Maramoja marks 1-year anniversary, unveils 1-month discount promo for users


Maramoja Transport, the firm behind the Maramoja taxi app launched during the iHUB at 5 celebrations last year, is one- year old, and to mark the milestone, the company has launched a month-long discount promo for its customers.

The firm has announced that it will offer its clients a Kshs 400 discount to the first 365 users for the next 30 days.

“To celebrate our birthday, we want to offer KSh 400 discounts to the first 365 users who take rides in the next 30 days and use the promo code MM1YEAR at the payment screen,” stated Maramoja in a statement.

“MARAMOJA turns 1 today! It has been an incredible journey with you all so we just wanted to take a minute to thank all of our team, driver community, and users, without whom we’d be nothing. From the start, we’ve always thought a bit differently. We focus on you and your relationships – in a word – we focus on trust. In the past year we’ve mapped thousands of relationships among our driver/client community, connecting our clients with their personally trusted networks of drivers,” added the statement.
Since its launch, Maramoja has achieved other milestones along the way. The firm recently participated in the 2016 Seedstars World Summit in Lausanne Switzerland, which brought together the top 63 Startups (out of 6,000 participating) from 55 emerging markets around the world, competing for equity investments of up to US $1 million, along with scores of  mentors, corporate partners, and investors. At the Sankalp Africa Summit in Niarobi, Maramoja emerged 2nd Runnerup.

Maramoja, which competes in the same space with Easy Taxi and Uber, accepts various payment options including MPESA, Airtel Money as well as cash and credit cards. The company also has a corporate package which enables corporate clients to pay via monthly electronic invoices.
