Online ride-hailing service provider Careem has inked a memorandum of understating (MoU) with Telenor Microfinance Bank to enable rickshaw financing for its ‘captains’.
Following the signing of MoU, Careem’s Tezz captains will be able to get their own rickshaws on a lease, read a statement issued by Careem. It further informed that the program will be launched soon.

It is now spread across 13 cities, including Faisalabad, Hyderabad, Multan, Gujranwala, Sialkot, Abbottabad, Sargodha and Mardan. Most recently, Careem had announced expansion of its mobile-app based ride-hailing services to Quetta.
